Variety of plants of which I have no clue what they are! any help gratefully received.

Tall plant in the pot, suspect its a weed.

Spiky green plant with  white berries/flowers.

Sprung up without me planting it, hoping for a flower, suspect a weed!

Lots if this in the garden, I didn't plant it.

Bought in a garden centre, has suffered, hasn't grown at all in a year and looks ill, red flowers.

Must stop buying more plants, repeat, must stop buying....

    1st I think is either a bird cherry or salix  - so effectively a weed
    2nd is pyracantha (Firethorn) - sharp thorns, lots of flowers and lots of berries
    3rd looks like a willowherb - a weed
    4th Rose Campion
    5th possibly Bougainvillea - but see what others think
    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.

    I think photo 5 is a Nerium Oleander, if it's woody base. If so, can take a while to grow, but like all shrubs, can take some time to get going.
