It is a clematis Victoria.
If there are no tendrils and it's not very big it might be one of the herbaceous ones.
C. recta maybe?
Glad to see they did a good job
Best wishes Mike and get well
They're black and hard and so big you'd probably see them lying on the ground.
They're good germinaters and the best and biggest are the ones that over-wintered but they don't all make it so keep some for spring
I can tell you Nick, moaning doesn't work on stinging nettles, hogweed or bindweed
Mine still haven't caught up
But they have seeded into a very shaded place so maybe that's the trouble.
Don't mow before they set seed Nick. Borage, corncockle and yellow rattle are annuals and seed well. I can't remember what else you've got in there
Back to gardening for me I think
And if not it will be fine next year
The blue one is a pulmonaria, probably 'Blue Ensign'
If you planted a wildlife hedge you've made an excellent start. Don't spoil your efforts by getting the sprays out
