    hey all,

    I am looking for some help with my garden, as I mentioned before I have no experience whatsoever in any garden. My first task was to weed the front garden area of the house.

    Having got rid of an awful lot of what I thought was weeds I am left with some stuff I don't know if its weeds, grasses, flowers or plants. Hoping you guys can help me out here.

    The area in the photo's was covered in a mass of different types of stuff most of which was horrible and just crap looking. so I cleared as much as I could and what you see is what I am left with. Just looking to identify if any of these are bad things to have or are weeds that need removing. Thanks for any help you guys can give.

    I did have some nice things in amongst all the crap so I tried to remove them carefully and tried to replant them after I had removed all the crap but I think I didn't do so good.

    Are these gone or is there a chance they will revive ?

    anyway that's about all for now sorry for all the pics in the post but I don't really have a clue what I am looking at. I have tried searching online but not finding what I need.
    I thank you in advance for any help you guys can give :)

    The first two photos are of a hardy geranium

    3rd photo, I think, is an aconite (not completely sure of this one)

    4th one - a day lily?

    5th - white Spanish bluebell

    6th - valerian

    7th - ?iris

      First one definitely geranium. Second one may be a campanula, and third one a montbretia if you are unlucky (spread like mad). I think the valerian is 5th and white spanish bluebell is 6th.

        1st plant Hardy geranium wait till it flowers to find out which.

        2 Could be Campanula purple or white

        3 what I call Montbretia but is now called crocosmia.. I think..

        4 Valarian

        5. White Spanish bluebell

        6. Iris

        I can’t tell in the last photo.. maybe water them and if they perk up we might be able to see.. :scratch:

              On the left in the last pic look like Camassia.

              Can I please add that I don't think you've planted them deeply enough. The white parts of the leaves should be buried.

                thanks all for the info on the pics, I guess all of these are good things that I should have kept, well maybe all except the montbretia :P I will try to keep that under control. I have watered the ones that are doing so good to see if they come back again. Many thanks guys.

                @CanadianLori thanks for the kind words, I thought I was doing more damage than anything good but after I finished it does look a lot better.

                @KFF I will try to replant those ones a bit deeper bit I think best to wait till they come back to life a bit ?

                Well folks I have some more pics to sort out then we will play the great identifying game again... Round 2 coming up :dbgrtmb:
