Just realised I don't know what a snip is. Perhaps it's 'slips' which would fit the garden theme better.

2&3 Slugs and Snails (and puppy dog's tails), from the nursery rhyme.

5&6 Lily (the) Pink, a recording by The Scaffold from the 1960's. [Scaffold = 3 Liverpool poets one being "Mike McGear", brother of Paul McCartney of that parish.]

Have you finished or do you have letters for the other?

Sorry, that should have been "puppy dogs' tails".
