ID for a small white flower

I don't know annuals but I can't see anything Malva like there. I thought they all had the lobed leaves

How do you know so much?

good plan soulboy. I only take a notebook to the garden but transferring notes to computer sounds a plan.

cut the flowers stems off, they'll be back next year, you may even get some little one this year

Butterflies lay eggs, they become caterpillars which eat and s...t, which is what that is. 

The butterflies must have got inside your netting.

A diary is a good idea.Try and remember where you put it.

I have lists of what needs doing last winter somewhere, and the year before that. Creating a new list atm. 

After a while you realise you don't have to know or remember everything, there are generals. Take early flowering shrubs, it doesn't matter what they are, they need pruning (if they need pruning) after flowering. Any other time and you've cut off the next lot of flowers.So that's just the one thing to know instead of lots.

Primula 'mutation'

I don't think that's a primula. I think something has seeded by it and taken over. Looks like a mini teasel but there are other plants with spines like that
