Hi, new to site and first time posting.
Im wondering if you lovely people can tell me the names of these plants.
The one with the blue flowers, I see everywhere and I'm desperate for some in the garden, but I've never seen anywhere selling them.
The other one is in my garden, I don't know what it is. It's also in full sun, doesn't look that healthy and I'm wondering if the leaves are getting scorched?

    They're bluebells. You can buy them in the green - usually around this time of year and into summer from good online nurseries. 
    I think your other plant is a Verbena of some kind. 
    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I feel a bit silly, I thought of bluebells, but presumed they were a small plant. Spot the complete novice...thanks, off to order some.

    Easy mistake to make Lyn, those are the Spanish Bluebells and are twice the size of English ones. They have very tall straight stems, the English ones as you rightly say are shorter and more delicate. 
    Gardening on the wild, windy west side of Dartmoor.

    I would have guessed a type of cinquefoil as the plant in the first photo.

    Just googled cinquefoil, leaves do look like that, but less healthy 🙁
