No 2 is definitely Parthenocissus Quinquifolia as Swiss Sue says. I'd also suggest it's planted too close to the wall , in what looks like a very narrow bed. It'll struggle for water there, so either move it or keep the watering can handy.

A Sheddy Question!

does it need to be on a concrete base? A shed is perfectly secure on railway sleepers which you can get now for about £15 each, which would leave more  budget for the base of the greenhouse. Just another option to consider?
