I hope so. Everyone needs snowdrops

most are very forgiving I find. Snowdrops and fritillaries less so but narcissi, crocus and tulips very willing

order soon Paul, this is the cheapest and most reliable method

That's just one company, lots of them out there.

Single ones make seed and give you more. Double ones just multiply by bulbs. Single are better for early bees

snowdrops hate being dried out and some of those you buy in autumn have been out of the ground and drying for a long time. May have been dead or dying when you bought them. Best acquired either 'in the green' or just dug in the summer and replanted straight away.

Wild flowers now

Red Campions are very variable in their redness

Pink Campion, Silene x hampeana is a cross between S. dioica and S. latifolia and also variable.

Not a clue where to start!

Yes, start small, don't clear more than you can keep clear or more, different, weeds will move in. Mowing and strimming keeps weeds down and stops them seeding, digging stirs up more weed seeds to germinate.

Not sure why you want rid of the hawthorns, they're not poisonous and great for wildlife.

These have more unusual plants than the mainstream seeds people. There are more but I can't bring the names to mind
