Posted: 24/04/2015 at 14:07

1. agree withGm except I think the shrub is a euonymus 

2 agree,

3, agrre

4, 5 might be a lilies

6, 7 agree

8, crocosmia or daylily

9, Euonymus, probably Emerald and Gold

10, epimedium - no doubt

11- 14 agree with Gm

15 Centaurea montana

16 these seedlings could be some sort of poppy

18. Euonymus, this is reverting to green, If you want variegation cut out the green

19, 20, 21, agree, the dianthus might be sweet williams

Anyone know any good trees that like very wet ground??

alder, Taxodium distichum, swamp cypress, I don't know how hardy that is though, never grown it. Ash, hazel and willow grow with their feet in water through the winter here..

I thought they were but maybe not Pd, I've never put them to the test. Cold GH end of March/April plant out in May and it's all over by the first frost.

This time last year I was planting things out and not bothering to water in. It was done for me every time

I've grown them, they germinated easily enough but I think my garden is  too dry for them to look really good. I think you can sow direct but I did mine in pots, no heat.
