I think the first is a cotoneaster, possibly C. lacteus.

A ribes at the base of the sambucus

a hebe in there somewhere

and box at the end

Native plants have some VERY interesting common names

It's not an acer, no doubt re that.

It only takes a few seeds to get the avens going. If it wasn't there last year it's not likely to be the perennial anemone. Avens is annual, or maybe biennial. Can you remember what the roots were like?

Plant ID please

2 easy tests wakeshine, maybe hefty will oblige. Dig one up and see what the roots are like, or wait for it to flower, which it will soon by the look of it.

we haven't had many opinions on this one have we?

Weed or not?

I like the linaria but some consider it a weed

Achillea is very varied in colour, let it flower and see if you like it.
