I  have grown it but not in recent years, it's perennial but not hardy. It's not a difficult as far as I can remember

Is this one of our stinging nettle plants???

There are lamium, the deadnettles. They're not related to stinging nettles. Lamium are in the same family as the hedge woundwort, Lamiaceae. Stinging nettles are in another family, Urticaceae. All they have in common is a similar shaped leaf.

It's not a stinging nettle

Is this St Johns Wort?

Hi Snoodle, Hypericum calycinum is invasive, the shrubs like Hidcote are fine.

H. androsaemum (Tutsan) seeds everywhere but isn't much trouble compared to H calycinum. 

How much of a nutty person are you ?

Hi Nicky, re 3. Yes, looking at images I think you're right, but it's not one I'm familiar with.
