My wild flower 'bible' is the Pocket Guide to Wild Flowers, Mcclintock & Fitter, 1969 Edition!! Sort of thing you might pick up in a charity shop or car boot sale. It has line drawings and good detailed descriptions. I don't find books with photos of wild plants are very good.

Are the pots full of roots? Do the plants need potting-on? It sounds as though support is required.
