    Sorry, not sure of the first couple offhand but I'll have a think.
     The best way to deal with nettles I'm afraid is to dig them out - hard work but they'll only keep coming back if you don't.
    The last picture I think is creeping buttercup, another nasty weed hard to get rid of but also needs digging out.
    Hopefully the others might be able to positively identify them.
    North East Somerset - Clay soil over limestone
  • Pic 1 is green alkanet - Pentaglottis
    Pic 2 is Symphytum - you can make comfrey plant feed from the leaves
    Pic 3 - nettles
    Pic 4 - I think you have two plants here, possibly creeping buttercup with herb robert, Geranium robertianum
