What are these?

To the left of the archway, the shrub with white flowers could be a Philadephus (Mock Orange).

What are these?

1.  The plant with yellow flowers is a hypericum (St John's Wort)

2.  Looks like an iris of some type, possibly Iris Sibirica from the seedheads I can see. 

3.  Purple leaves to the left are Cotinus (Smoke Bush.   In the middle is a rose - small rambling type - not sure what name. To the right is what looks like a mallow.

4.  Left to right: Fennel, Aquilegia, Lemon Balm

5.  Fennel

So I can borrow convertible again, then? 

Of course Verdun - you're very welcome  but this time can you vac the boot out when you've finished with it - it's still full of compost and leaves and you're the only one who carries plants in it 

what to plant under an oak tree, sunny though......

Susie - I didn't have time to post a reply as I had to go out, but I'd noticed that your question had gone onto Page 4 and was unlikely to get noticed there so I just posted 'Bumping' so that someone would see and reply to you.

Hope that's ok

Happy to learn Verdun - the only brooms I've been responsible for were in my Aged Ps' garden, and given that Ma had never pruned them as she'd been told they would sulk, I left well alone.  

Sounds like 'start as you mean to go on' is the way to treat them.

Don't think broom likes being pruned.  My understanding is that they're not long-lived plants anyway, so let them do their thing and then when they peg out you can replace them.
