id the plants in my garden!

Here's a big one for you all! 

Loads of plants/shrubs/trees to identify! 

I'm new to gardening and I'm not all that good at matching illustrations/photos in books to the real thing!

 3. This one is covered in thorns and I believe had some sort of Orange berry during summer. 




 5. Amazing looking tree!



6. Have a couple of these, Some bigger than others biggest been is a small tree with berries.





8. I believe is a climber although this one has nothing to climb up bar a low fence!

 10. Large Grass.

    3 is a dog rose - the  berries are the hips which follow the flowers.

    4 is a Campion

    6 is Hawthorn

    7 is a Pieris

    8 is Honeysuckle

    9 is Bergenia

    11 is an Iris

    12 is Quince (Chaenomoles)

    13 is Caltha ( Marsh Marigold)

    Will come back to the others if someone else doesn't get them. Making dinner just now! image

    I'm getting better, I guessed 5 and got 1 wrong.....not telling you which one though LOL image

    They are very quick on here Luke, far quicker than me as I am still learning too, which is why I just play a little guessing game of my own to see how many I get before looking at the answer image

    Do we know what type of Hydrangea no 1 is? I love the purple/green leaves image

    I do too Panda, I didn't get that one and had to go back and look as it isn't typically Hydrangea looking, very pretty though image

    10 looks like Carex pendula

    13 looks smaller than caltha, I think it may be celendines

    In the sticks near Peterborough

    I agree with nut cutlet 10 is carex pendula and 13 is probably lesser celandine
