that I included in the Shades and shapes post slideshow at the beginning of the month have now all been identified.
Unknown ~ 2 is a lemon balm (melissa officinalis) plant which seems to have self seeded as I’ve still got a packet unopened!
Unknown ~ 3 is almost certainly a polemonium, or Jacob’s Ladder, which I shall keep an eye on to see if it grows and flowers.
Unknown ~ 5 is a plum tree according to Joe and Trevor, which is good news!As you can see it’s grown up through the patio pallet , so I’ve put a length of old broom handle in the ground close by to hopefully deter me from stepping on it!
The elder tree which I’ve mentioned recently is actually a common ash! I dug it up yesterday morning as I’m told that nothing will grow in the adjacent ground. It was just a few feet from the above plum tree which I think is much better to have on the plot.
My thanks to everyone who helped identify these, all your suggestions were much appreciated.
