Novice Gardener - plant ID’s

Afternoon all,

I’m wondering if you can help me?
I’ve recently moved property and have been doing some work in the garden (it was a mess). My former property didn’t have a garden so this is all new to me.

There is a section at the front of the garden which has an arrangement of plant, flowers and bushes (probably the odd sneaky weed too) but I don’t have a clue what any of them are and would love to find out. 

Additional to ID’s, any tips on how to maintain this would be ace.

Thanks again, 
N

    Hello Nathan :) 
    The small yellow flowers are primroses or possibly polyanthus. 
    The pink flowers in your second photo look like anemones.

    I'm no expert but when I first looked at your top photo I thought 'Agh! Ivy'; but a second look at the variegated leaves made me think of cyclamen.

    Need to see clear close up pics to see exactly what is growing in that bed.
    Yellow are Primroses.....Primula vulgaris.

  • Thanks for all your help so far, here are a couple of close up snaps. 

    With the bush that has seen better days how can I help this grow back? 

    Again all comments are appreciated! 

    Thanks,

    Sorry you need to post full size pics if you want accurate answers.
    These pics will not enlarge to see clearly.
    Best to just do 3 -4 at a time or it can get messy.

    Second photo ground cover plant is very likely Campanula Poscharskyana.

    The middle photo bottom section could be some type of Erodium plants as it looks like rockery style planting.

    Last photo, the fleshy ground cover might be Saxifraga x Urbium.
