by this weekend it will be October. They aren't evergreen.
if you add organic matter, muck, compost, the worms will turn up on their own.You'll get a better lawn as well
There are a lot of them
that could be Viburnum lantana, Wayfaring tree
start from the camera icon and make your photo much smaller. I reduce the size of mine to 30%
slug worms probably, there are quite a few species, I had Cherry Slug Worm, Caliroa cerasi, never seen any of the others.
it would take a top class spurgeologist to ID the species/cultivar
the flower, as you suspect, isn't from the same plant Emmalily
What are you trying to grow? Some perennials are much more reliable than others and only the hardy annuals seed o from year to year.
I'd say creeping buttercup. Meadow Bs have more finely divided leaves.
I think the weird extension will open into a flower.
