A few plant id's please

1, you're right , a foxglove

2. I can only see laurel and honeysuckle

3. honeysuckle

When I enlarge these they are enormous and I can only see a bit at a time but I didn't see any russian vine

the tree. Is that now? I wouldn't expect to see a red cherry or any other fruit yet.


weeds or flowers?

They're not trees I would choose for a small garden. There's space here and something tall is needed or the scale would be all wrong.

There are much better trees to choose if you want one or two trees in a garden.

Full or partial sun?

and I grow things that 'should' be in full sun in partial shade. Equal success.

Rosebay wh is food for the elephant hawkmoth. I don't know what the various others are good for

Shrubs/Plants for total shade?

Sarcococca is good in shade and smells nice in winter.

Cornus mas seems to be coping as shade has overtaken it.

Choisya does surprisingly well in shade. Euonymous fortunei in all its many varieties.

Hazels are good.

 ferns, hostas, aquilegias, foxgloves, pulmonarias, dicentras, some of the  hardy geraniums, epimediums. 

Will that do for a start. I'm sure there'll be more suggestions

What do I grow?

A virtual poke through. I like that Victoria.

You get a picture of gardens from the lists don't you? Maybe the picture is totally wrong but it's still good fun
