Confessions of the plantaholics

I can't stop buying/saving/cadging and sowing seed. Is there any hope?

Rowan (I think) Problem

If it's being eaten it won't all be eaten and will come back next year or maybe later this year. Native trees have native wildlife that eat bits of them, it's all part of the biodiversity. It doesn't kill them.

Hard to tell from the photo but doesn't look like a rowan.

If you think too many leaves are yellowing and dying off have a look at the trunk. Has the bark been damaged?

What is this plant?

One of the peas. Probably the one known as everlasting pea, Lathyrus latifolius. I'd grow it from seed, thought it does spread a bit at the root and it might be worth seeing if you can get a bit of root off, I'd do that before growth started next year.

I'd be leaving the best to seed and removing the rest (if I got round to it)

That's Chaenomeles, as opposed to Cydonia oblonga, both known as quince

What is this plant and what do I do now the stems are falling over?

You can cut them right back if you like, they'll make new leaves and flower again next year. Or you could leave one to set seed if you want more. 

It's an aquilegia

Those flies are probably aphids and can be brushed off or hosed off with water. No damage to plant or bees or butterflies or anything else including you

Alien plant to ID please....
