Hi Iceman

Don't rush to cut back, you may be cutting off this year's flowers. Identify the trees and shrubs before you cut them. Post photos on here and someone will ID. Some shrubs sulk if you cut them, some are improved.

Your weeds/flowers can also be IDd here.

remove anything you're sure is a weed but be careful. Some things haven't appeared above ground yet and you don't want to damage the tips.

Maybe they're looking for a pond that isn't there any more.

Yes they are Voyager but cuttings aren't my strong point. I'm sure someone else will take you through it. 

Cuttings would get you more of exactly the same plant, which seeds might not

Foxglove cuttings - anyone tried it?

Hi Primrose. They'll be very soft now if they've been indoors, don't put them straight out, harden them off a bit first. We've got frost, or close to, for the next few nights here.

Let the weeds grow so the weedkiller has something to kill.

Foxglove cuttings - anyone tried it?

They will grow, don't know when they'll flower. Next year probably

Foxgloves are usually sown later in the season to germinate in summer, stand over winter and flower the following year.

Foxgloves don't need propagators and indoors. They're hardy plants

Foxglove seedlings are tiny. They're also biennial and I set them later in the season to flower next year.
