I am no expert but plant no 2 looks like Perennial Veronica Gentianoids which has lovely flower spikes and if you look closely you can see where flower spikes have been cut from your plant. These plants are also matt- forming

I agree with star gaze lily, it is also known as solid-rooted fumewort or bird in a bush.

 I am almost certain no6 is Pulmonaria, a lovely plant with purple or vivid blue flowers that arrive in spring. A lovely find as it grows into clumps quite fast which can be split and spread around. I bought mine about 7 years ago as a tiny seedling and now have about 12 big clumps around the garden and running out of space. No 2,3 are definitely Cotoneaster, if you like birds in your garden they love the red berries that this produces in winter.4, I agree with Ryan is a Pelargonium.

Rootrainers, are they worth it

I also use mine for sweet peas and have used the same ones for two years and will definitely get another few years out of them yet. I agree with fidgetbones as long as you are careful with them they will last several years. I find they do a great job with sweet peas or seeds that will have long  roots

 Hi Ommthree I also have a Olive in a pot mine probably should be repotted now as it has been in the same pot for two years. According to my books on the subject. Olives should be planted in  a gritty free draining compost, positioned in a sunny sheltered spot and can be pruned in late spring.Unfortunately this is all that my books tell me they don't go into detail on the actual pruning.But, one thing I do know is that you shouldn't over water. I always use rainwater. Hope this helps.

 The snowdrop. The best things come in small packages and how wonderful and generous mother nature is with her packages.
