I can see some Elder there, but to be honest I can't make out enough detail on the photos. I would take out the elder if it was my garden, but some people like it.
It would probably prefer a soil-based compost, if you can't plant it in the ground. Check to make sure it's not waterlogged, give it some liquid feed and cross your fingers!
Nick, you made me giggle - I love the idea of moaning at the weeds to get them down!
Angelica gigas is another huge umbellifer, stunning plant.
Yes, Tamus communis. It's a relative of the yam!
Comfrey is often used for this. I believe there is a special strain sold for this purpose. Nettles are good as well.
The mole thing doesn't work, sorry to say.
That reminds me very much of Pellitory of the Wall, a nettle relative. Strange place for it to grow though, it could well be something else entirely!
I very much doubt if the tree will recover, conifers don't reshoot when cut back or damaged. I think the houseplant is a schefflera, but not really my subject - someone else will be along in a minute!
Looks like Allium moly. Should smell a bit oniony!
