Red clover???

I'd rather have red clover than either of the plants you mention. Weed, apart from things like ground elder and bindweed, is a matter of opinion. 

ID for plant please

Those leaves aren't flax. they look like fat hen or similar which doesn't have flowers like that. Can you make sure the two are one. If they are, then we're wrong.

I recently spent some time convincing someone that the yellow daisy flowers coming out of the top of a hellebore were two different plants

Help with soggy soil

I think I'd start by checking the drains/water main/soakaways.

If all OK there you'll need to excavate to find how far it extends and break up or remove the clay. It will still be a hole full of water, whatever you plug it with, otherwise.

Hi Cloggie

Mostly it gets spread around the garden. It makes a great mulch in spring, before the ground dries out (or any time so far this summer). This lot will be spread around and behind the bamboo. Lots goes out around the trees and shrubs surrounding the meadow. 

Foxglove in pots

Most foxgloves are biennial, sow and germinate one year, flower the next, then die after setting seed to start again.

The most common one, Digitalia purpurea, is a native plant hardy anywhere in the UK.

You can grow them in containers, if the container is very small the foxglove will be small
