Think about the probabilities. Which is the one found in found in all GCs, sold by all hedging companies and forming miles of hedging in the uk?

Prunus laurocerasus

Shrubs and Trees

I think they're just standard Prunus laurocerasus Angie. Mine often drop the fruits at the green stage.

Why don't some of us like them?

For me, too big and lacking in elegance.  Can be pruned back, but look awful for weeks afterwards.  A tendency for the odd branch to go yellow and die back, causing further die back after  removal. Branches get very top heavy and break off in heavy snow if we get any. And last week the wind ripped a large branch apart and into another which will result in the whole thing being cut back to base when we get round to it

Odd flowers on Aquilegia Black Barlow

There's nothing standard about aquilegias unless you have a species that has been grown miles away from any other species. (and I mean species, not a hybrid or cultivar which most of them are). The are a promiscuous lot and you get what you get which will be different again in the next generation

Yes, that's the one. 

Do you know the history of your piece of ground? Mine was used as a dump for years and there are some areas where things just won't grow. They might start, but then go yellow and die.

And are they all woody things that have died or have herbaceous plants died as well?

Plant ID please anyone

could be,  Gardenmaiden. I had in mind the similar(ish) Telekia as a possibility

I think that's Euphorbia robbiae which may swamp smaller plants but doesn't poison them. 

Plant ID please anyone

The point against honesty is that being biennial it's either very tiny right now or the flowers are over and the seed pods are forming. That plant looks as though it's coming up to flower. Could you do another couple of photos from different angles?
