What is this shrub/tree called?

There's a glitch on the forum at the moment - try reducing the photo size - that usually works.

Good luck 

Sorry but I used Weedkiller

I've got one of those rather gorgeous galvanised ones with a brass rose ........... and a rather battered green plastic one - if only I had somewhere to hide the green one when Forkers visit - at least I always make sure it's behind the camera

Wood avens or water avens - a type of wild geum.  

Those spiky things are seed heads - they get everywhere.

My thoughts too KT53 - the homemade stuff won't kill the roots unless the salt is applied to the soil around them - which Sybille says she doesn't do.

I think ihe rock moving video was all very precarious and seemed totally ineffective, but they appeared to be perfectly happy and the birdsong was lovely - I think they were enjoying themselves - I wonder how far the rock has moved - maybe they go out there every sunny day and move it a few more inches .............. 

perhaps Hosta is a little more impatient than those two .......

Making a bed on existing grass?

A hedge is going to be there for years and years - you need to prepare the area properly - gardening isn't 'instant'. 

Do I plant out now?

But what sort of plants are they?

Hosta - have you seen this video?  seems a pleasant way for you and your Lovely Hub to spend a day - although I'm sure the chap's white beard is noticeably longer at the end of the film
