The way wild garlic spreads, I doubt if someone picking a few leaves will do any harm!

Lovely aren't they, Fishy? I planted some several years ago, now they come up all over the place, even in the lawn!

Suggestions re a suitable creeping plant

Hi Steve, have a look at this Taylor's Clematis page, it seems that this clematis should be no problem in a container, but you would have to put some kind of trellis on the wall for it to cling to. You could also contact them and as for more advice.

Is this area ready for planting

I don't know what anyone else thinks, but it looks great and I would plant, plant, plant! Taller things at the back, medium in the middle, aubrietas and similar to hang over the stones would look fantastic. You've done so well with weeding, and I think any that come up now should be easy to remove. There will always be some weeds, that's life!

HELP! Rapidly growing plant / weed ??

Also check that it didn't come from under the fence from next door. If so, warn them to get rid of it, otherwise it might come back.

I would suggest pelargoniums (also commonly called geraniums), they are pretty drought tolerant and if you mix some vermiculite or water restoring gel crystals into the soil that should help. There are lots of lovely coloured pelargoniums, both upright and trailing.

What plant is this?

Definitely a Dieffenbachia, this site has some tips
