I'm in no position to criticise your photography I'm lucky if the subject apprears in the end result

I think the first is Cichorium intybus, chicory.

A photo of the whole plant would help for 2. close--ups are fine but don't give a complete picture of the plant.

Flowers, leaves and overall appearance do the trick

ID help please

Another possibility for 4 is one of the oenotheras (not biennis)

New wildlife pond - what should we expect to colonise it first?

Maybe not the one. Something with a very low frequency sound that I didn't recognize but tried to match up in the insect book

Weed or plant please?

I think Will is right, Euphorbia lathyris, caper spurge. 

Sowing in greenhouse

Posted: 08/07/2015 at 21:56

You can sow aquilegia now but keep it cool in a shady place, it will germinate quickly. 

For me, all seed is best sown fresh, no extra heat. But all my plants are hardy, and don't need heat

Favorite lavenders and other strongly scented plants

Rainbowfish, I have 'Graham Thomas' and he is niicely scented. A friend has 'Scentsation', ghastly name, fantastic scent.

I read once that for nicotiana the nearer the colour is to white, the better the scent. Not proven conclusively but N. affinis is white and so is N. sylvestris, both fantastic. I had some pretty little yellow ones with no scent at all. This year I've grown N. mutabilis but too soon to comment.
