But don't worry too much. HF isn't the end of the world, we have it here and it hasn't wiped out the garden. Two willows (the beginning) and a clematis in about 10 years. It tends to go for compromised plants, weak, too dry, otherwise unhealthy. Keep your plants healthy and grow what is suitable for your soil and conditions.
That's a summer house (or something)
Where do you keep the garden tools?
There are some great plants to be had.
and then there those pink and white variegated things (many)
A matter of taste
or lack of it
the second is Alliaria petiolata, Jack by the Hedge and many other names. Orange Tip larvae food
The first does look like a geum and could be the dreaded Geum urbanum if you didn't plant it. I can't remember the common name for that.

If you have space and it's a nice looking tree keep it for the bird food as NewBoy suggests. Occasionally a good apple comes from seed and a new variety is created, but mostly nothing much of quality for human consumption.
I like 'Sam's Early Compost'
There will still be hundreds in the ground
all those white and pink things are sick looking to me, not enough chlorophyll and liable to burn round edges in anything other than moist, still, shady, mild situations.
Plastic toys, I don't like those either
looking at that horizontal line running round I wonder about crocosmia corms. Could you clean one up so we can see the shape properly?
they are licking the sticky stuff. Any aphids around or plants overhead that drip sticky stuff?
I've never hoed up seedlings, not sure if there's a hoe in the shed
I've dug up bulbs half an hour after I planted them
