thrilled I think,looks like jasmine but not sure.
Honesty, lunaria annua a weed, seeds like hell.
Seed pods are totally the wrong shape for Honesty (which isn't a weed in this garden).
That's Jack by the Hedge aka Garlic Mustard http://www.naturessecretlarder.co.uk/wild-food-useful-plants/jack-by-the-hedge-alliaria-petiolata.htm , a tasty salad leaf for foragers and brilliant food plant for the caterpillars of the Orange-tip butterfly.
It'll die down soon and disappear until next spring
I agree with Dove. I've been pulling quite a lot of it out the hedge today.
Yep, Alliaria petiolata, food for the orange tips larvae
It has a mild mustardy flavour, a bit like nasturtium leaves - I like it in a sandwich with slices of salami
That's Scrophularia nodosa, figwort.
I was pleased to find some of those appearing when I cleared the jungle here. There are rather too many of them now
I love figwort - the first wild plant I consciously learned to identify when I was a child - however, if you were going to offer me some Nut, I think I'll decline, thanks all the same - don't have the room for them here.
Which of my vast collection of weeds would you like as an alternative Dove
Think I'm getting quite good at growing my own Nut
That's not going to get that tall, only 1.5m or so.
