I agree with Barbarea vulgaris.

On line Plant identification

First of all, post pictures here and we'll try to help. There are some very knowledgeable people on this site.

You could also try iSpot, it's really for wild plants but lots of the folks on there are good at garden plants as well. 

Flower or Weed?

Are you thinking of Rosebay Willowherb, Chamerion angustifolium? It's not that, it's an Epilobium species. They have smallish to very small pinkish flowers and produce huge amounts of seed.

Could be a Willowherb, in which case pull it out before it goes to seed.

What tree/shrub is this?

Osmanthus delavayi is what I meant when I said Sarcococca. Senior moment!

It's a horsetail, Equisetum arvense. Keep on pulling it out!

Honesty tips please.....

I only had one plant which produced seeds last year, and this year I've got loads of seedlings. The snails seem to love them, though.

Is it scented? Looks like a Sarcococca.

Inedible; it would depend on which species you have as to whether it would be toxic at all. Don't eat it, the cat probably won't either! This type of fungus is very common, it might be a Peziza species, there are a lot that look like the picture.

Don't worry about it, just remove it if it gets in the way of your seedlings. It lives on decaying wood in the soil and doesn't have roots as such. It won't harm your plants.
