And if you are really desperate the roots of Silverweed are supposed to be edible. But definitely don't take my word for that, look it up before trying!

Horrible stringy weed - what is it?

It is a Potentilla but not the one generally called Silverweed. The leaves are too green and not as serrated as Silver weed. I could go out and take a picture of the latter, but it is too dratted cold!

Funny you should ask about a white Muscari, I have got some in a place where there has never been any Muscari at all. They are not white M. ambrosiacum either. The flowers are slightly different and less tightly packed. Wonder if they have come in compost from plants we have bought?

One of the Weigelas. Usually does not get pruned, except to remove dead or crossing branches to keep an open shape. Any pruning is done after flowering has finished.

When ours blocks the path I just take the shears to it and cut it back when needed.
