2. Mint

6. Lemon Balm

Do you want it all gone or just bits of it as you have some nice shrubs there. It's a pity to waste them as you'll get some lovely displays from them.

Honeysuckle not flowering

Posted: 15/06/2014 at 16:12

Is it dry at the roots Billie Jean? Honeysuckle is a wood land plant that likes moist roots in shade. I think I'd water it thoroughly give it a light feed and provide some shade at the roots for this year then in spring next year give it a haircut and do the same, moisture and shade. I'd check for aphids as well and spray with dilute washing up liquid.

Cherry Problem

You've got cherry fruit drop. There are a number of causes. See the link below to the RHS for advice. Nothing you can do about it or little at least as it is probably due to the wet winter we have had.

Could be 'Nancy Nicholls', you can wire supports for the bushy types of plant which need staking. They're readily available at GC's or online or you can make your own. 

Plant ID please should be easy

Lilac troubles

Posted: 14/06/2014 at 14:41

That doesn't classically fit any of the diseases lilac suffer from at this stage. I think I'd pick off the affected leaves and spray with a fungicide as a precaution. Give it a feed and some tlc and see how it goes.

Nettles & Butterflies

Many of the butterfly caterpillar larvae, will still be munching on nettles, so I would wait a while. Best time to cut them down is late summer when they have finished feeding.

Mystery unruly rose

It's probably a shrub rose although which one I have no idea.
