    The first and second ones look like dahlias.  Can't help with the third one though.

    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.

    The third one is a deadnettle, I think. Does it stink to high heaven when you pull a bit off?

  • BobTheGardner I certainly did not expect that as was thinking it might be some sort of weed! We went to the garden centre the other day to buy a Dahlia (Bishop of Llandaff) and we had one all along. Looking forward to it flowering now.

    Waterbutts it did have a bit of a strange aroma that's for sure.

    Thanks very much you two.
