Hi can anyone identify these plants that are in my neighbours front garden, and do I need to worry about them?

I thank the first one is Lady's Mantle, not sure on the second but there is a smell of curry from that area.

    As you surmise, the first one is Alchemilla mollis. Dead head it before it seeds all over the place. I just take shears and cut it all off at a few inches high. It regrows.

    The second is Hypericum perforatum  possibly, but defo a Hypericum

    I think it might be H. androsaemum but, as you say Berghill, definitely a hypericum

    One of the few genus of which I have no literature.

    Yes, Hypericum androsaemum or Tutsan. It has lovely colour-changing berries later on.

    If you dry the leaves of Tutsan inside an old book they smell like cigars.
