Willow Hedge (I think)

Most clems can take a good hack.

I would get rid od the elder unless you want a wild look, I'd get rid of the willow unless you want a lot of work that has no end.

Those willow shapes and fences that Alan mentions look nice for a while but they need constant controlling. They don't sucker so the ones coming up in the blackcurrants were probably sticks from pruning. If you leave them on the ground they root

Collecting nicotiana seeds

I think you're right Philippa, also with foxgloves they going to be sown immediately (at least mine are). Nicotiana aren't hardy so they've got to be really ripe and dry to store till spring

Weeds or flowers?

Watch that wood avens the seeds stick to everything and they're soon everywhere.

3 is a pea or vetch

1 looks familiar, can't put a flower on it. I don't think it's a weed though

I'm still on board subject to no weather warnings. 

I've abandoned the bus idea. I'd spend longer on the bus than at the garden. It'll be train or park and ride
