    D is honeysuckle and E is one of the many cotoneasters, maybe simonsii or franchetti

    A is a weed, Veitch.  B is a Spirea, even the RHS couldn't tell me which one as I have this in my garden.

    Agree with D and E, could A be one of the brooms, is the proper name cytsis? can't remember

  • Thanks both. So D is honeysuckle? When will it flower, and should I be giving it some support to get up the fence? 

    MuddyFork, I had a sneaking suspicion A was a weed, it has spread like wildfire. I'll make sure I don't let the flowers set seed then and rip it out. 

    Interesting that B is a Spiraea - I have another one in the garden which my neighbour ID'd for me as 'Golden Flame' but it looks very different to this pink one. 

  • jo47, Spiraea salicifolia, thanks!

    I think the little pea is Lathyrus pratensis, Meadow Vetchling.

    In the sticks near Peterborough
  • C is an oleander

  • Thank you everyone!

    Could C be Jasminum beesianum? Looks like 6 petals to me, Oleander only has 5.

  • C is a climber, so I don't think it's an oleander. Jasmine could be right. Thank you!
