    1. Possibly Glechoma hederacea.  https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Glechoma_hederacea

    2. Viburnum possibly Bodnantense ?

    3. Digitalis - foxgloves

    4. Ribes (currant family) could be either a culinary or ornamental variety. Does it have any little fruit on it?

    5. Aquilegia 

    6.

    Thank you DampGardenMan, Dovefromabove and bullfinch from prompt response. As novice and very limited gardening experience I must have dug up so many useful plants like Aquilegia and foxgloves etc last autumn and early this spring .Now I am going to take photos and label plants so can differentiate good plants and weeds.  Photo six looks like weed , wait day or two if someone can identify  before removing.

    Good plan 👍 

    No 6 could be something good ... it looks like several things at the moment ... it looks as if it’ll produce flowers before too long ... when it does show us some photos and we’ll have another go. 😊

    I would suggest never digging a plant up that you haven't identified. What until it flowers, otherwise you may well lose good plants.

    6 could be a young michaelmas daisy. Only time will tell whether it’s one you like the colour of and want to keep or a palid small flowered miserable beast. I agree that 1 is Glechoma - which is my nemesis as it gets everywhere and is a complete nuisance.

    Dovefromabove# I will keep number six until it flowers and post the photos. I labelled few of the plants today.
    Paul N# I learned the lesson. No digging if not idenfied or no label. Good advice.
    Helix# Glechoma is definitely going. Don't want nemesis and complete nuisance. Already hundreds of seedling so time of action. 
    Thanks guys.

    Some plants are unhappy with root disturbance during the growing season ... particularly if they are a type which has a tap root ... which you will not know until you know what it is ... so potting it up is taking a risk ... 😊

    @ImpatientGardener ... if in doubt ... wait 😉 ... I know it doesn’t suit your temperament but we can all learn and it is possible to teach old dogs new tricks 😂 
    It’s always a calculated risk to move plants in the growing season and if you don’t know what the plant is you can’t make those calculations 🤷‍♀️
    So I would either draw a plan of the garden with notes of what you’re considering moving and to where, or label the plants as ‘possible movers’.
    By the time early autumn arrives you should know what the plants are and what options you have got moving them 😊
