Hey everyone.

I am busy cracking on with my garden and inherited few plants from previous house owner but I am not sure what they are. Could anyone tell me what plants 1 and 2 are and if they are worth/should keep or get rid of? Plant 1 is massive and shading other plants. 

Next picture is of some bluebells but I am not sure which they are Spanish or english?

The tulips are in wrong place ideally right next to Clematis so bit cramped. The aquilegia looks nice plant, can it be moved as again not in ideal place or shall I leave.

The bluebell is going to be right in the middle of a Cottage Garden Scheme, any ideas on what to do with it, its all by itself lol.

With the Pulmonaria can I dig that up after flowing and move it to another border or when is best time to move it? Quite like the look of it. Thanks for the tip on the Goose Grass, had no idea but remember pulling a load of up last year.

I have 3 plants growing in the garden at the moment and have no idea what they are. They have been left over from the previous owners of the house and was wondering if they are worth keeping or moving.

Plant 1 -

Gonna order the plants today, will test my soil PH though first.

Only problem is by asking Woottens about each plant probably not practical as I am ordering around £200 worth of plants so quite a lot of them.

Thanks Verdun, not sure whats locally but I know there is a Council run gardening place that I think sells compost etc, will investigate that.

Don't know on the mushroom farms, will check that too.

Sorry for the dumb question but how do I know what soil I have?
