Mystery Plants from inherited garden
Hiya! We recently purchased a house that we're doing a re-furb on. In the back garden, there used to be a bit of a flower garden. I'll be converting the back garden to a veg garden, but there were some plants and flowers back there I might be interested in keeping if they can be identified. Can you help?
Big 'ole shrub that needs some cutting back. I'm guessing this has some berries on it that might be useful in keeping the birds off any fruits in my garden.
What's this little purple flower? I think they were first blooming when we first went to look at the house back in late February.
Another purple flower, but kind of a globe-- these were also early bloomers that are out-going now. They really cheered up an otherwise gloomy garden.
And is this any use or is it a weed?
Thanks in advance! I'm kind of a newb at this and I appreciate your feedback!
