Identifying Hedge Type

Lonoicera nitida, that's the most common hedging lonicera. I don't think it's Lonicera pileata that has more of a horizontal growth. 

It can be cut back really hard and will re-grow..

fidget, look at this. Roscoea scillifolia

That's lovely

Another one to seed into my drive, the best seed bed around.

I've got lots of cautleyoides seedlings coming along as well, year 3 I think, potted on early this year

I'd have to let them flower. 

They are late flowerers. I don't grow them but have admired a late display in other gardens

What's this bug/ insect? & bumblebee advice

Posted: 01/10/2016 at 18:04

Early flowering plants are useful for bumble bees, they're out and about early. There are plenty of summer flowers without making extra effort. I have a very early flowering pulmonaria, P. rubra I think (though it could be a hybrid, I never get seedlings ) crocus, snowdrops and Nonea lutea which has germinated over the last few weeks and will flower February/March in normal years but was flowering on NYD this year. And some water when it's dry

Can't assess the size of your fly but if it's big have a look at Volucella zonaria, a hoverfly.

Couple of IDs please

I should think the sedge is Carex pendula. Attractive but not for most gardens, too huge and invasive. I have a clump that takes up a circle 6' across and the flowering spikes are taller than me

Is this a weed?

I think it's lovely
