Evening all. I've been pottering around the garden and have found several plants I want to split up and donate to the flooded gardens champaign if they don't fit our garden plans.  Unfortunately I've no idea what they are, if they're any good to anyone, and what they need care wise til they are rehomed.

Thank you in advance!

Plant 1.

 Plant 2.

 Plant 3.

 Plant 4.


Plant 5.

 Plant 6.

 Plant 7.

 Plant 8.

    That final plant is EVERYWHERE in the garden - can I just dig it up in clumps to divide it?


    I've also some pansies that has just finished flowering that I've dug from the garden and put in pots. What care would they need now?

    1. could be a very poorly rhododendron

    2. pinks

    3. pulmonaria

    7. hydrangea

    8. geranium

    feeling quite proud of that, probably wrong though!

    Oh my!  Lots to go at !!

    plant 1 - don't know

    plant 2 - some sort of pink/dianthus

    plant 3 - pulmonaria/lungwort

    plant 4 - euphorbia, but don't know which type

    plant 5 - some sort of hosta

    plant 6 - don't know

    plant 7 - some sort of hydrangea

    plant 8 - possibly a geum (if i am being optimistic) - but more likely a creeping buttercup - not sure anyone would welcome it as a donation, as its more like a curseimage

    Hope this helpsimage

    I fear that 1. is a rosemary with very severe jaundice.

    8 looks like a hardy geranium

    6 has got some hosta-like buds as well

    I agree with Nut ????- 6 could be another hosta

    Agree with the others

    1. I second a poorly rosemary

    5. Looks like Hosta shoots

    8. Hardy Geranium, Phaem?

    Just a note they maybe need a repot and some slow release fertiliser?

    1 sickly rosemary

    2 pink

    3 pulmonaria

    4 euphorbia

    5 lilies

    6 ? post again in a few weeks when we can see more

    7 hardy geranium - just break bits off and pot up, all should take. very easy to propagate.

    I don't think that's G. phaeum. I think it's that pink one that spreads like mad
