Hi All

I am completely clueless when it comes to gardening, but having moved over the winter i'm now in a position to tackle the garden. The only problem is that i have no idea what is a plant and what is a weed. I've added some photos, and would really appreciate it if you could take a look and let me know what they are and what ones i need to keep and which ones i need to remove.

 

Thank you

Mmm, they're a bit blurry and they don't enlarge when I click on them  but from the ones that I can get a bit of a clue about, I think that the first is a culinary thyme, the third is culinary rosemary, and the fourth might be autumn fruiting raspberries. 

The fifth is the thyme again. 

Can't really see the others clearly enough to hazard a guess. Sorry.

Ok thanks for looking! I was about to rip them up!!

Have a look at the stems of the fourth one - if they've got some prickles on them, they'll probably be autumn raspberries - if they are cut them down to the ground and give them a sprinkling of fish, blood and bone and you'll have new shoots before long which will give you fruit in the late summer/autumn

You look to have Bay in one of the pics, rhubarb next to the raspberry canes, you may have one of the cistus and one campanula as well, but as dove says' they won't enlarge, so it's difficult.
