fragrant flowers

Nicotiana affinis, perennial but borderline hardy. I mostly grow as an annual. Lovely evening scent.

Hesperis matronalis, sweet rocket, that's biennial though

Very Frustrating

That's why I don't grow skimmias. 

They may do better in acid soil but I've never been in a position to try that.

It would need a very thick mulch to sort out my weeds, 18inches might do it. But probably not, I have hogweed and bindweed emerging at the top of 3 foot heaps of shreddings in summer

drooping hypericum

I think a photo would help. It would show if they were drooping from poor health, or, as you suggest, leaning towards the light.

Which hypericums are they?

We didn't have any snow landgirl, It stopped just our side of Stamford. I've had a quick look at your link but haven't found details for the Peterborough event. I'll have a deeper probe though
