I know it’s too early and it can be difficult to identify.

1. Climber.



2. Shrub





3. Ground elder? 😭

    Number one looks like Parthenocissus. Not sure about the other two but the last one could be ground elder.

    Photo of shrub No.2 might be Cotinus/smoke bush.
    Weed could be ground elder, though photo isn’t enough to go on- to be in the safe side, loosen the soil around it, then take it out oh so carefully, making sure the root (usually creamy coloured and rather fatty) does not beak at all.
    They can have root networks far more extensive than the little plant above.
    Don't just yank it out, as any remaining bits of root will produce a new plant.
    Above all, never ever let the b***er flower and seed around.

    Thank you, @dappledshade. It hasn’t crossed my mind that it could be a Cotinus.
