Philippa, do you mean ivy leafed toadflax, Cymbalaria muralis, grows in walls?

Shrub ID please.

Deutzia is a possibility

Beech chippings

chippings won't slide as easily as gravel but they will slide with the weather and the birds poking around for insects. I wouldn't use a membrane, apart from not liking the effect they have on soil and soil structure, they're more slippery than soil.

Allium white tips - feeding?

The top one has very shiny leaves, I reckon that's Geranium lucidum. It's an annual, seeds madly but pulls out OK. If you grow it fairly hard it finishes with fantastic red leaves.

and green alkanet as stated

It's lovely Jim, it grows in with brunnera and adds height.

It grows in with everything else as well if you don't watch it

It was a G. cinereum cultivar.

But that's all I remember, there was a tread on here asking about it. If you look through new threads from Friday evening you'll find it.

That G.phaeum with the dark markings is  'Samobor'. The markings persist through its seedlings but weaken through the generations.

The more I look at the original pic the more it looks like Malva moschata or similar malva. You'll find out soon enough when it flowers.
