Plant IDs Please

If 1. isn't a dicentra it's an aconitum.

2. . might be Campanula trachelium or some other campanula

3. must be an umbellifer but not sure about angelica, I though that was shinier. 

4 I think is some sort of spirea but they're not shrubs I know well so can't say which one

Can you see what it is yet?

Nice one BB

Will I ever learn?

Maybe Potters

It's not so much that I can't tell the flowers from the weeds but I've got so many weeds I can't get them out without upsetting the flowers

All the amphibians breed in water Ashleigh.

You might get some newts move in as well when you get your pond done

Then there's the insects that lay eggs in water and their larvae live there for ages. Dragonflies and damselflies and water beetles

Don't think about the mozzies too much, something will eat their larvae for you

What to sow....where to start??

Hi all

mention of nicotiana reminds me. I haven't sown them yet. Nor any of the others I intended to do about mid March. 

Half a lilac shrub & pigeon damage ?

Pigeons eat anything. Everything

I would have expected it to recover though, even if the pigeons had another go this year

That sounds very odd Peanuts.

Help ID these plants, please

Cheryl, another taker over is in the pic behind the Zantedeschia. The one with the blue flowers, that's why I asked which plant for 3. It's green alkanet, Pentaglossis sempervirens. Seeds a lot and very deep rooted. Lovely though.

re the Zantedeschia,  It looks as though it's well to the back of thegarden. Can you make it inaccessible til the toddler is older?


Slug solution....

Hi Zoomer you click on the green tree in the toolbar and click select. select the file in your computer, upload and save. Sometimes it takes ages so don't think it isn't working. If it's a very large photo shrink it a bit. 

I generally put them on at about 1000MB.

I think they're MBs but don't rely on me for tech stuff. 1000 somethings
