tbf I thought the top ones were aconitums as well. I think I would be able to tell the difference in the flesh (or leaf) but not from the photo

Buddy, 2 days ago you were recommending Gallup. Is that not a trade name for glyphosate?

There are some lovely ferns. They're good in shade

I agree with Verdun. I'm not much of a chemicals person but I think it's that or repeated digging. I don't think covering it will do it. 

Any ideas what this is before it flowers

If you rub the leaves you'll know. They all have a hint of garlic/onion about them

How easy are roses to grow from seeds and when is the best time to sow the seeds? Thanks.

Species roses are very easy from seed. I sowed Rosa rugosa in autumn and it produced a flower within a year.

Rosa moyesii and rubrifloia are easy as well but not so quick to flower.

Any of the hybrid roses you find making viable seeds will produce something but not as the parent, though could be close with the single flowered ones

Cultivars never seed true though some may look much the same, at least for the first few seedings.

Foxgloves species will seed true unless they're been crossed with something

Diseases of trees and shrubs

Something's blurred. Is it my eyes or that photo

It looks more like an infestation than a disease. have you poked around to see if there are aphids or other visitors. That curled look is very familiar to me

My feeling is not to worry. If you have native hedging you have native insects which support all the other native insects and birds and so on up the food chain

Native hedging

Rain butt water is fine. These are native plants and don't need faffing around with.

But if you're planting them out this autumn leave them alone til then. Moving them around in summer will cause distress.

If you've got any evergreens get them shifted first before the ground gets cold.
