We just bought a house and a previous owner was a master gardener at the Indianapolis Museum of Art's gardens/woods. There have been a few residents in between and everything is really overgrown. We just weeded a flower bed and there were a few that we weren't sure what they were. We know nothing about gardening, but really want to learn.
I think the large-leafed plant is a burdock? And it's a weed? I know the hostas are fine. Someone used a weed whacker (not us) and chopped several down that are coming back.
Anyways, we know the hostas stay. Are the other plants weeds, too?
What is this bush? It looks like it's dying. Can we nurse it back to health?
