Do they look different from last year? that's what bulbs do after flowering, the leaves die back til next year.

Snowdrops have gone well done that path now and so have the early daffs

I think 'Cintho Alpha' is a white cultivar of Crinum x powellii. The pink ones are hardy for me. 

Recognise this Fern?

it's a good time of year to cut back a cotinus, take it back to a bud below the damage. Better than trying to splint of rescue. It will grow away quickly

I think enilorac is talking about Centranthus rubera not Valeriana officinalis

Not a hot, dry site Fishy, mine is in quite a lot of shade and as close to damp as it gets around here, Alkaline soil though so probably OK in both. Smells nice but less so if you get really close to it
