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.

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!

GW live. What to expect?

Speaking personally, I've given up on GWL. It's dwindled from what it used to be, far fewer stalls of any gardening interest, and I've rarely seen  much to impress in the show gardens. Malvern autumn is very different, I always enjoy it, but again there are far fewer gardening things and more craft and tat.

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.
