I think the main plant is probably a nandina and the one at the base is perhaps red valerian, which I would consider a weed as they get everywhere around here. Dig down a bit - if the roots are fleshy and white, it's valerian.
Great thank you for your help all, i've looked it up an it looks exactly like Nandina 'Brightlight'. Time to weed and care...
Nice pics now DD
Have you been practicing
I thought Nandina also but the new images suggest a Jasminum of sorts rather than Solanum.
