Unidentified Plants

Hi all, I'm having problems identifying two plants which I found at the bottom of my garden. I've just moved in and the landlord doesn't know either. The previous tennants left the garden a bit of a mess and I want to know the best way to look after them so that it's beautiful for next year! The first 3 pics are plant A and the last 2 are plant B
Any help would be greatly appreciated!! :smiley:

    The first lot of photos look like Wisteria. The last two photos could be Kerria Japonica.

    641 shows rose stems with a wisteria above.
    637 shows rose stems.
    632 shows wisteria seed pods (good news as it means it flowered earlier in the year.)
    712 & 719 show Kerria japonica.
    A trowel in the hand is worth a thousand lost under a bush.
  • Thankyou so much!! I'm so excited to see what colour the wisteria flowers are!

    The rose looks like a climber and badly needs pruning - I would start by removing all of the dead wood which looks like those brown dead thorny rose stems which you can see behind the wisteria pods.  Wisteria stems are thornless and a grey colour so you can easily tell the two apart.
