    Thank you both, ah that sunflower came up in a pot of pound shop lupins, they didn't survive but at least I got this. Just looked up Geum rivale Gardengirl, looks really nice!

    6  . ceonothus

    4 and 7 same plant, wood avens. horrible weed, I put loads in the bin today. I try and pull the little  yellow flowers off before they seed and form "bobbys buttons" that stick everywhere.

    Thanks fidgetbones.

    I'm not sure whether 6 is ceanothus, these leaves are quite big, three or four inches, and it hasn't had any flowers on it this year.

    I'll have to look at 4 and 7 again tomorrow. Cheers.

    4 Wood avens - weed

    5 Deutzia

    6 Escallonia

    7 - it would be good to see the flower

    Hi Jack

    1 &2 I agree, one of the hypericums and a sunflower

    I think 4 and 7 are Geum urbanum, wood avens get those seeds off before they stick to something.

    3 a sowthistle

    5 deutzia

    6 ?escallonia

    I don't recognise 8, a few more pics might help

    Thank you daintiness and nutcutlet.

    OK, so there's a few weeds here. So wood avens are bad? Even if I want wildflowers?

    I'll get rid of the sowthistle.

    Oh, I'll have to see if that is an Escallonia and if it flowers.

    8 seems like some kind of climber, I was having trouble trying to get a good picture, I'll try again tomorrow.

    Thanks everyone!

    Could 3. be an Honesty seedling which would flower next year?

    8. Campion?  Some consider them weeds, I love them as wildflowers and have quite a lot.

    7. Avens - but possibility it could be Leonard's Variety? which is beautiful.

    6. Escallonia or possibly ceanothus

    7. Wood avens seed head
