What is the name of this shrub?

That branch right at the bottom certainly looks like garden privet.

Pineapple weed

Mother-die is usually cow parsley, Anthriscus sylvestris. Like most umbellifers, I wouldn't eat it!

Pineapple weed is related to Chamomile and can be eaten, there are quite a few recipes out there.

That branch looks dead, I think I can see evidence of coral spot fungus which only attacks dead wood. I would prune out the affected branches and keep it well-watered in the hot weather.

What's in my garden?

Dryopteris filix-mas, a lovely fern. What a shame it's been pulled up! Incidently, Bracken is far from harmless - it is designated as an invasive species in the wild, and the spores can be carcinogenic if breathed in.

Can anyone identify these?

The second one is Dog's Mercury, definitely a weed in a garden. Not sure about the first, except that it isn't anything that you planted!

Help with identity of this shrub/climber.

Pretty sure it's a willow.

The close-up looks like a hawthorn to me, possibly Crataegus persimilis 'Prunifolia'. This would also have spines. But either of the other suggestions are good too. The photos won't enlarge for me, and I think they are upside down.

Need some more id's please!

The second and possibly the fourth photos show Epilobium (Willowherb). There's also a lot of Willowherb in the 5th photo. That needs to come out.

Plant ID's please

I think the first one is a Heuchera.

Need some more id's please!

The Euphorbia in the very first photo is Euphorbia helioscopa, Sun Spurge.

In  the recent set of photos, the top one is Shepherd's Purse, Capsella bursa-pastoris. The middle one is a bitter-cress, you need to count the stamens to be sure which one you have. The bottom one is Creeping Buttercup, Ranunculus repens.

They are all weeds in the garden, spreading prolifically. Get rid!
