Nondescript shrub ID

Might be one of the spiraeas. You don't get much more nondescript than that

Most of the trees in UK parks and gardens come from somewhere other than the UK

I never open berries or shell nuts when I sow them Mr J. Stuff germinates naturally without all that.

Low maintenance ideas for a large garden

you don't need a tree to link to flickr.

The trick is to hit 'enter' when you've posted the link.

Tree is last but one on the right in the tool bar, not much like a tree.

Low maintenance ideas for a large garden

That's the maintenance but what's established there now? If it's nettles, brambles and docks they'll need knocking back a bit before it's a wildflower meadow. Those I'd mow regularly for a few years before letting it have a whole season's growth.

I kept one for years, either that or it kept seeding. I think it may have been Cyperus vegetus.

Flower meadows are low maintenance for months but then they need cutting and carting. That's high maintenance.

It's a cyperus but I don't know which one

Berberis Thumbergii

I'd do both. B. thunbergii will grow from seed, all the species will, but the fancy hybrids and cultivars won't come true,

Sow the berries when they're ripe in gritty, well drained compost, leave them outside to experience the winter weather. They'll germinate in spring.
