Plant ID please

The secondin Geum urbanum, wood avens a weed with seed that stick to clothes and animal to spread everywhere and then a bit further.

The shrub looks like pyracantha. Does it have vicious spikes?

Please identify this wildflower for me

I think that's Claytonia sibirica. Not native but has probably gone wild in damp spots

Weed or Ground Cover?

Have you tried digging any up. It looks more like a mass seeding of something you had last year maybe?

I don't see vinca or ajuga there.

But I do see the corner of a variegated astrantia? that need rescuing from whatever it is

Which one should I move?

Sorry Daryl, I think this is one of the large suckering dogwoods with not much to offer. It doesn't look like one that has red stems that look good in winter.

Not too late to prune, you'll just get later flowers. You probably need top do that if you've pulled it out of a wall. Don't let it dry out completely, but don't over water. I'd stand the pot in the shade til it gets established, it will reduce the stress

Verbascums are easy, they have a caterpillar to eat them, Mullein moth caterpillar, but I haven't seen any of those this year yet

Slugs and snails like most things but I've never noticed them attacking foxgloves


I like proper biennial foxgloves as well Verdun and you can rely on them to come round again by seed, unlike the hybrids 

Another ID please

These are 2 google images of larkspur buds

and a love in the mist below, very similar.

I'd have to wait and see

If you've grown foxgloves plant them out primrose.

These Illumination Pink are not really foxgloves, they been crossed with something else, Isoplexis, which is tender. 

Proper foxgloves, Digitalis purpurea (including the white ones) are 100% hardy.

Which one should I move?

I'd still move the dogwood, through the shredder

I have some and it suits my large wild garden but I wouldn't recommend it for small or tidy gardens
