nice big ones, good flowers next year. Don't forget to let them seed, they're biennial.

Plant ID please

It's a cyclamen. Once it flowers it will seed around and you could get a good patch. I think it's Cyclamen hederifloium

great idea, I wouldn't deep dig, just loosen the surface a bit and sow like you would grass seed. All native plants can take an autumn sowing, if they couldn't they'd have died out.

Most native plants respond well to autumn sowing, in nature the seed is set in summer and autumn, some plants germinate quickly before winter, others wait til spring.

Horseshoe vetch is a chalkland plant I think, is that what you have?

Which one of these would be best?

yes, berries on the females only.

Which one of these would be best?

no, you need one of your plants to be male. The other two (or more) can be female for the berries

Which one of these would be best?

There are a few self fertile ones but not variegated as far as I know. 

Using weedkiller around trees.

If you've cleared the weeds what are you going you put the weedkiller on? Weed killers generally work through leaves


If there's anything you can put on soil to kill roots it won't differentiate between brambles and tree.
