Go out and squeeze it and see if you get a very pungent, musty sort of smell. I think that's Solanum ducamara, Bittersweet, woody nightshade.

Note the resemblence of the flowers to spuds, same family.

Unknown plant

You won't need to buy seed Passionate, save the ones this plant produces. You might get some variation but they'll be much the same

One of the nightshades, I always forget which is which.  The one known as Woody Nightshade I think

They're not ripe yet but yes

Can someone tell me what this is, please?

Agree Chrissy, I missed that in the OP. Nothing grows naturally like that Roops. Nor stay that way without frequent snips

Plant ID please!

Lychnis chalcedonica

Unknown plant

I can't see the leaves clearly but my first thought was godetia, now called clarkia, (or maybe it's clarkia that's now called godetia)

Can anyone identify this plant?

It's mallow family. Is the picture part of a shrub or does it look like an annual or a perennial?

Once they're ripe I'd remove them from the pods if they haven't escaped already and make sure they're really dry. Then store in paper envelopes, not plastic

They'll go brown or black and the pod will dry off, then they're ready
