I planted these at beginning of summer, they have both flowered continuously, can't remember their names and if they are perennial or not. Anybody know ?

Top one looks like Callistephus chinensis, an annual form of Aster.
The second is a Salvia, short lived perennials for most part.
Neither of these are particularly frost hardy.

The top one is Argyranthemum frutescens 'Sassy Pink' Marguerite Daisy. I think the foliage gave it away.

Couldn't turn my head far enough to look at the foliage. Not a plant I have ever grown either. Half hardy perennial according to the books.

The bottom one is Mealycup Sage (Salvia farinacea). Where I live, they are treated as short-lived perennials, but they may not be hardy enough to do that in the UK
