Anybody have a suggestion as to what this plant could be?

    Polygonatum superba?

    I wondered if it was maybe Fallopia japonica (Japanese knotweed) as the flower looks very similar. Sorry nutcutlet, this is the best and only pic I have of those particular plants. The screen at the back obscures the plants quite a bit especially the flowers image sorry about that!

    The purple thing is Dracunculus vulgaris.

    First could be a persicaria but my eyes crossed trying to focus.

    Good job on the Dracunculus! Such an intriguing flower!

    I've had a good look on google images RE Polygonum superba hogweed, but I'm not convinced number one is that.

    Ithink that middle one is an orchis but they're not plants I'm familiar with so can't say which.

    The Persicaria is probably P. amplexicaulis 'Alba' but no guarantee, there are lots

    Yes well done phillipa! Pyramidal orchid (Anacamptis pyramidalis), a British native it is!

    How about this berry? I thought it might be a nightshade of some kind, but none look quite like this
