Help Identifying plants

Lemon thyme

I'd completely misjudged the scale.

I'd replace that, it's worn out

I have some in the garden and some in a pot. I leave them where they are and the pot goes in a cold GH. I've brought it in already to avoid it being really wet when the cold weather comes. The potted ones have been in  their pot for bout 3 years.

Can I save this tree?

I wouldn't hold out a lot of hope for that one. Water will sit in the broken area and rot the trunk. A new branch won't grow from there. You can keep it while it still gives you pleasure or get rid of it now and plant a new tree. 

A cedar of some sort I think.

Hi anderson, glyphosate doesn't need applying once a week. It works on strongly growing green growth. Respraying something that's already died back, or is in the process of dying back, is a waste of time and money.  A second spraying may be needed if new growth occurs. Don't rotavate til it's really dead, all those little bits will grow.

What to plant under a tree?

Of the geraniums obelixx mentions I have found macrorrihizum to be very reliable, dalmaticum a bit inclined to fade away. There's also the hybrid between the 2, halfway in size, G x cantabrigiensis, comes in at least 2 colours. But I still rate macrorrhizum as number one.

Can you help identify this plant (v. 2) ?

Alkaline or acid soil Paul?

Was it spreading by throwing up new stems or just spreading out?

Any evidence of seeds/berries

Yes WO, I haven't tried Aldi mix but lots of mixed seed contains stuff the birds can't or don't eat. I don't buy mixes any more.
