Looks like Geum urbanum (wood avens) to me, just before it sends up flowering stems.  I can't get rid of the damn stuff from my garden.

Plant ID?

Looks like Phlomis russeliana (aka Turkish or Jerusalem sage.)  No uses that I'm aware of but might be worth a google.

It looks like fasciation which is usually caused by environmental damage (eg insects, a virus, UV light) at an earlier stage in its development in which case it won't get passed on to the next generation.  If all of the flowers on that plant are similar it will be a genetic variation and may be passed on to some of the seeds.

Help! pepper growing problems!

The compost in the growbags looks very wet.  Peppers don't like their roots too damp so I would stop watering until the surface of the compost goes dry and keep fingers crossed.

What are these?

The first one is Clematis integrifolia.  The 2nd and third photo's I'm not sure about but possibly grape hyacinth.
