Plant ID

any scent to the leaves of the first? Looks like Calamintha nepetoides

2nd is a geranium, lots of similar cultivars, don't know which one that is

3rd is a Phlomis, need to see a bit more of the plant for which species. Might be P grandiflora bit P. fruticosa is more often seen.

4 is Acanthus mollis

I am humbled by your support

Weed or not?

could be Verbena bonariensis but not any sort of bulb 

What is this plant ?

that's a tree paeony, how nice. It's a shrub really, not a tree. 

Please help ID this Plant trio.

how about a photo of the variegated plant showing the rosettes of leaves. This could be an important clue to ID.

What is this plant ?

not a delphinium. 

It looks more like a tree paeony tbh. Have you any more photos? some showing the leaves from the top. 

If it is, leave it alone and it will flower next year or the one after, don't cut it back like a perennial. 

Nicer than a delphinium

Thank you,

Another townie question

wild primroses and cowslips grow in grass here and get mowed after May or June. They come back and flower every year.

I prefer white Lantana.

I would like to apply for membership please though I'm not sure if I'm eligible because

1. I am reliably informed that what we have here is not a forgotten heap of rusty metal and half bricks but a source of useful material for building and sculpture.

2. It is a wildlife habitat.

3. It's OH's heap

Should  I stay or should I go?  (Cue chorus)

Being in the public eye would lead to constant criticism. I don't think you'd like that. You only have to read through a few of the GW/Monty Don/ANotherTVprogramme threads to see how it would be.There are people waiting to pounce on any error or defect in appearance. 

Geoff Hamilton is revered now but only because he's dead. He was well criticised in his time.
