What the heck is this?

I don't know how big they are but they're crocosmia shape. Sweet potatoes are sort of oval with the stem scars at the ends. The ones that Sainsbury's sell anyway.

A lot depends on the species/cultivar. 

If you've got leggy bits with leaves on the end you could pin them down to the soil and they'll probably root and make a bigger clump. Whether you want a bigger clump or not is up to you.

If you're good at construction you could build a tiered support for containers, like terracing. That would give you more containers for different plants and hide the tank faster. More effective than relying on one big plant in a pot

I have marjoram and it's alive with insects when in flower.If you want something for early in the year, some snowdrops,(buy now, in the green) and pulmonaria are very popular with my bees

Ok, then we can have another try, something to give scale as well, your finger maybe  but not over the lens

the plants I mentioned would do OK then. herby type plants are good. Avoid double flowers, no use to insects. A lot of GCs are now labelling plants that are good for bees and you can buy annual mixes of seeds for bees.

Was the first weed one of many or just the one. If there's more of it on the bits you haven't done yet, a photo of it growing might help.
