Pulmonaria rubra is my earliest of early bee plants. Usually has the odd flower on new year's day and still flowering now

Allowing for the fuzzies I think that could be Dianthus deltoides. 

You'll have to wait and see if it's Arctic Fire

Ah. I think OH has something closely related. They came from an army surplus place. They'd been around a while. Very musty smell

Is my pond water poisoned?

How big are the trees/shrubs, are they moveable? A natural pond is a lovely thing to have. Mine is natural in that it has no liner, but it's just ground water and becomes very low in a dry summer. Some of it is in the shade, there's not so much activity there and the pond sides are bare of vegetation apart from some sparse pond sedge and ivy

Some things won't mind a shady pond, mozzie larvae for one (or millions) but you won't get a great variety of wildlife in there.

Have you got a photo we could have a look at?

Under a yew and a camellia is never going to be the best place, could you move it?

Richard Mabey in Flora Britannica under Anthriscus sylvestris lists

Queen Anne's Lace, Fairy lace, Spanish lace. Kex, kecksie, Queque, Mother die, Step mother, Grandpas's pepper, Hedge parsley, Badman's oatmeal, Blackman's tobacco and rabbit meat  Not a bad collection.

Daucus carota just gets wild carrot and bird's nest.

I don't think you can have a right and wrong in common names. If it's what people call them it's the common name.
