Can you help please?

That's trailing one I think, Solanum dulcamara.  Definitely a nightshade.

What is this please?

I'm not really a detective Liri, I've seen a lot of plants and recognise them but I'm as lost as anyone else when I don't recognise one.

The owners of this one will be visiting me soon, I'll ask them to bring a branch with them for further investigation, or maybe some seed if it's ready.

Inside, the one I chewed wasn't like a crataegus. It was more 'fruity'

What is this?

It's a cornus but I don't know which species.

It's seen a lot in council plantings which is where my original cutting came from. 

tbh I wish I'd never brought it in, for the reason you mention

BBC -entertainment or education?

I can't see a way round all that pansyface. Anything that needs a bit of thought, more than a three second attention span, is doomed to fail on TV. 

We,  (that's us, the forum) are, to a great extent, the exception. The viewing public as a whole needs its celebs and pretty faces and everything served up as shallowly as possible. In depth and educational programmes are not going to happen.

What is this please?

A shady greenhouse?

I think a lot depends on what you want to grow. Cuttings and seedlings do very well without direct sunlight though if it's too dark they'll get leggy

ID please

Good idea Dove, can you go and check it out for me please, you're closer than I am.
