Caltha palustris (marsh marigold) is another one that would fit in well Percy. Great pond/bog plant and pretty much evergreen

First one's just a holly I think Percy and the second is geranium 'Wargrave Pink' - grows like  a weed everywhere up here. Netting is probably the best method.

Wouldn't use weedkiller if it was me. Think you'll just have to bite the bullet and dig that out when the time comes. Might be a bit messy but it will settle down in time. In my last garden we had a large pond which was spring fed and there was a little waterfall where the supply came in. We had a cotoneaster and lots of ferns there. Is it dry in that spot or damp? You can get evergreen ferns which would do the job well. Some of the sedges would work too especially if you plant them on an angle.

flowering plant ID, but no flowers, just a bulb!

I was going to say - looks a bit like feverfew foliage to me- and since Hortum's IDd it as a tanacetifolia that ties in. Feverfew is tanacetum.

It will have seeded in from somewhere SP

Is mahonia invasive?

There's a huge one where I work - north facing area but quite open so it gets quite a bit of sun. Loads of other shade loving planting around it - Camellias, Skimmias, Rhodies, Pieris etc.. Lovely deep green as you say and it flowers like nothing else in winter.

We should never forget.
