New to gardening and no idea where to start

 Hi Gulliver, welcome.

You'll probably want to do something about that pond. It's never going to fit in with anything stuck out there and you won't get the frogs/toads/newts in a raised pond. There may be insect (eg dragonfly/water beetle) larvae in there though so rescue them to a place of safety if you dismantle their home.

The fallen tree could be sawn up to make a woodpile for all sorts of exciting things to live in

 

Sanguisorba menziesii

It's insect pollinated so the pollen/nectar side should be OK. It's not native so there may not be anything that feeds on the plant.

That's a good idea Clarington. I haven't written mine yet but this may be the incentive.

If this is Mirablils jalapa, the flowers don't last long but there are a lot of them. I love the scent but they're not very striking visually.

Have you got it inside Safeer? I've only had one plant go through a mild winter.

 They may indeed have got the bad vibes Forester. I may give them off strongly at times. Ask any houseplant

I was given 3 plants last year. the fruits fell off every time they they nearly got ripe. It may not have been the plants' fault

I wouldn't have grown them if I hadn't been given them, I don't like them much

Nice blog higgy

I recommend Pulmonaria rubra for early bees. It's in flower already and will still be flowering when the other pulmonarias open up.
