Well done, that's a lot of visitors

Plant ID please!

It looks more like beech to me as well, but yes, you can let it grow to the height you want, cut it back to start again, or prune some branches and leave the rest, whatever you like. I'd say it's quite well established under there

Tree ID please

Have a look at images of Cercis siliquastrum (Judas Tree), and see what you think. Those leaves, even in that state, don't look like any Prunus (cherry etc). They come from a much warmer and drier climate and will not be having a good time this year.

It used to be said that mosses and lichens grow on the North side of a tree and you can find your way out of a forest by using that as a compass. It's not true. They grow where they grow. Different species might have a different preference and mosses don't do so well in full sun, but nothing definite enough to see you out of a forest.

How do you edge your grass?

Thanks copperdog, we do have a good supply of wildlife.

I'm glad we all have different styles, otherwise my garden visiting would be very boring

What plant is this please ?

I don't think it's JKW. I think it's a shrub, though whether it's one you want, that's another thing altogether.

Pam's Choice is a strain of the common foxglove, Digitalis purpurea. Its seedlings will be more like the species and less like Pam's Choice. I like them better like that

I think there's some fasciation in that big thick head but side shoots are quite usual. 

We had a thread on fasciation recently

I like the ones with the footprints inside
