It's not dogwood Jack. I think Hostafan could well be right with Kolkwitzia which I may have mis-spelled. The remains of the flowers/seeds look right

Dogwood get berries after the flowers

If you weedkill, don't cover afterwards, just let them die and repeat the kill if anything regrows

I think the Taxus is 'Standishii' or similar name pd.

I love ivy but your wall is the place for it, not the flower garden

Ivy swamps other plants if not kept in check and does nothing to add structure.

Daphnes are very slow as punkdoc says esp in the early stages, if you have spare cash a more mature one? D. tangutica is good. Avoid D. 'Eternal Fragrance', it does have the odd flower through the winter but is very dull. 

Those very upright taxus are nice, can't remember the name. Euonymus, 'Emerald and Gold' and 'Emerald Gaiety, not so structural but very reliable.

I'd cut off the dead sticks and  glyphosate the regrowth for a start.

Brambles and nettles probably came on from the top. Brambles spread by rooting at the growing tips and cover land that way. Nettles spread over the surface. If you're very lucky the fabric will have held some  the roots on the top.

But agree with Fairy, not a quick fix. Just one of the reasons I don' t like these fabrics

I wouldn't use the wood of a diseased tree as a support for plants.

Primulas gone to seed

You can split the candelabras but I don't know the best time for this, sorry.

Whether the seed comes true depends on whether the plants basic species or something developed or hybridised
