I think it is rose bay willowherb.(Epilobium angustifolium) Pull it out before it seeds.

Plant ID please

I dont know what the yellow flowered one is, but to the left of it is a dock which def is a weed and ought to come out.

Can anyone please help with naming this plant?

Hesperis live two to three years. They produce lots of seed which you can scatter around if you can recognise seedlings and are not a hoe fiend. Perfectly hardy.

I usually sow a few in a tray, prick out into small pots then put in gaps in September. I have never tried eating either, although I believe you can eat wallflower flowers.

mine didnt climb for two years. This year it has gone bonkers.  I thought it was mislabelled and was about to dig it out if it didn't do anything this year.

The reason I thought it honeysuckle, was it looks like one I bought cheap, planted it ,lost the label, and for two years it has looked like that. This year it seems to have got into its stride, lots of twining shoots for the first time, and today it has pairs of scented white flowers, so I think mine is Lonicera japonica. It has much less showy flowers than  the Graham Thomas I have on the pergola.

I suspect that always happened with my mum and dad too.

I suspect it will be so close, that even if there is a 1per cent majority, an excuse will be found .. Not enough people voted, not 50% of population eligible to vote  or something else

I don't think it's either. Looks like one of the shrubby honeysuckles.
