    The first one maybe a type of Sedum but I'm not sure ...

    The second one looks like Echium vulgare Viper's Bugloss

      Thanks Mike, you've put me on the right track! Just checked and it's Echium vulgar 'Blue Bedder 'but like you, I'm not sure about the other

        Try Sedum 'Turkish Delight' it looks similar so could be that ? I'm sure it's a type of Sedum though.

          I think you've hit the nail on the head there Mike! Yes very similar. This is quite tall and I see that it can grow up to 12inches so more than likely you've got it right. Thank you
