The blue one is a pulmonaria, probably 'Blue Ensign'

If you planted a wildlife hedge you've made an excellent start. Don't spoil your efforts by getting the sprays out

Is that next autumn 2014 or 2015? If this year they'll be fine. If next year dig them up and remove any really long bits of root and replant. That way they're not too established in 18months.

This isn't something invented by me, I read about it somewhere but can't remember where

I never touch then Bal and I have a lovely collection. It's what plants did before gardeners turned up, made seeds and reproduced

Nice little bug, I'm not well up on bugs but think this is Coreus marginatus, Dock Bug.

I grew this for a while many years ago and I've dealt with it in other peoples' gardens, one in particular had a fine stand. It's never attacked me but I think it has times when it's more or less nasty. It's photosensitive. I'm not sure if that's an accurate use of the word but  the rash is made worse in sunlight.

A lot of the family are like that to some extent, celery for one. Celery rash is a condition of market gardeners, my son got it on a holiday job when he was a teenager. My mother says I got it from cowparsley as a child but never since and I've handled enough of it

I stopped growing it because it seeds everywhere, not because it hurt me
