Nothing to do with gardening, but applies before giving a presentation.

PPPPPP!

banana has produced seed pod what now

I've never found a seed in a banana. Aren't they all reproduced vegetively with offsets?

unknown plant 2nd attempt

If the plant is lemon balm would not the OP have mentioned it smelled of lemon? It is very distinctive. Same goes for any other herb. I agree it is a herb.

Old guttering

Fairygirl, that's a good idea. Leaving aside that old guttering is a bit ugly!

(I've got my head down after saying that!)

My onion stems aren't drying out

My gosh where are you? We haven't had much rain for weeks and weeks. The soil is bone dry.

There are still some weeks to go until the first frost, but if one is threatened I would lift them and hang them somewhere airy to dry them off. Preferably a greenhouse. And I would pick out any that bolted for use in the kitchen first.

Did you perhaps plant them a bit late?

Old guttering

You can sow peas in guttering, before you slide sections out into the garden.

Otherwise it is too shallow for most things. It dries out very quickly.

Scented Jasmine Advice! BERRIES!

It probably needs feeding. Tip the plant out of the pot; it may be pot-bound and need re-potting. If the pot is full of roots, it may not be getting as much water as it needs.

You can discard the berries unless you want to experiment by growing them.

Lovely tree

Lirodendron makes a very large tree in time, so I think you are better off if it is Red Oak!

Ideas for impact tree/bush

Blackthorn is not really suitable in a garden, near a house, because it is not a pretty plant/tree and it has fearsome thorns. It only has one burst of interest when it flowers, then nothing until you have sloes, most years, but not every year.
