Have you got a toolbar over where you type? 2nd from the right, there is what I'm told is a tree. I thought it was a green wine glass

I start from the tree in the tool bar. You can't upload from a phone, or so I'm told, I've never tried.

Physalis alkekengi / franchetti aka Chinese Lanterns. Not to be confused with the physalis that you buy to eat in the supermarkets. I don't know if you can eat these but I don't.

I think I'd pot these up and nurture them till leaves appear. Maybe soak them for a couple of hours to rehydrate. A dry packet isn't a good place to be if you're a plant

They are hardy and invasive if happy. They creep along by root extension.

Lovely seed pods, little to offer otherwise. I love them.

I've still never seen a live badger. Dead ones too often. There are badgers very close to my garden, measurable in yards not miles. I'm sure they must come into my garden, my over the road neighbour has seen them in his garden.

Marygold, with most perennials you have to wait til the second year, a few flower in the first from an early sowing.

Don't cover the seed, light aids germination. Fresh is always best but I don't think these need a chill to germinate

Can anyone ID these plants?

I think the tall one to the right of the rose is a buddleia

What is this plant?

Could be, definitely that family
