Your garden is beautiful, greenlove, well worth the effort. What is the name of the lovely rose?

ID again please

It's a begonia,think it could be this one, it's lovely!

Begonia boliviensis ‘Santa Cruz Sunset’ This begonia is more scarlet and less orange. Beautiful in large pots or hanging baskets; very tolerant of bright locations. Vigorous and cascading.

What is this plant? Could it be a weed?

I agree with the others, I have a couple in my garden, but don't worry about seedlings, they are very easy to pull out, I only find 3 or 4 seedlings each year.

Thanks for the great link, Tee Gee. Unfortunately I live too far away to visit your lovely UK gardens and shows and love looking at them online!

There's a extra large supermoon expected tonight, you're very lucky to see it, rain obscuring the sky here.

Hi Mark, yes do remove them, they should come up again, have just done mine. If you leave some of your favourite ones, they will probably self seed and you will get new ones next year, though maybe not as big.

Plant ID please

Wow, that is really pretty!

Is there such as thing as a potted tall evergreen climber?

Hi Mck, have a look at this RHS site, it will explain everything, from planting to pruning and training Trachelospernum jasminoides.
