Plant ID

It might be a flowering current which is purely a decorative shrub, such as Ribes aureum or Ribes sanguineum.

Plant them all - this often happens with bulbs during their first year.  Next year they will almost certainly all flower.

Another plant ID!

Might be Kerria japonica.

Wanted: A Tall Wall Climber

One of the Montana clematis' is something to consider.  If the wall is yours then I would put up a supporting wire framework to support whichever climbers you choose.

What are these?

That's looking very positive - true Morels are indeed hollow:

But I echo what Dove said;  Get an expert to confirm.

What are these?

They look like Morels, possibly the most sought after of edible mushrooms:

Be careful though as there is the False morel which is toxic:

And me - I pull a few dozen up every single time I go into the garden.  It's PITA!

What's growing in with my asters?

Can you help identify these plants please?

1) Looks like sweet rocket - definitely worth keeping.

2) Looks like foxglove seedlings (on the left) and something else I can't think of right now.

3) Not sure but could be one of the willowherbs - I'd probably have that one out as it looks sick anyway.

4) Geum.  If you didn't plant any geums, it will be Geum urbanum (aka wood avens), the invasive weed variety.  You could leave it - if it grows small yellow flowers it is the weedy variety and you can hoik it out sharpish!

You can transplant the foxglove sedlings to somewhere you want them to flower next year.
