    Hi. I've been living at my current address for a few years now and the garden has lots of mature plants. I'm looking to tidy it up a little and would really like to identify the plants I have as a first step. Any help with identifying these would be very gratefully received:
    1 a climber with some lovely flowers

    2 A small bush

    3A small tree

    4 another bush - berries just starting to appear on it

    Thanks very much in advance for anyone who can help.
    These are just from the front. I'll post more images of plants from the back soon.

    Very nice plants @keentolearn , you have been fortunate. :)

    Agree with Pete on 1,3 and 4, 2 could perhaps be an Escallonia. Do the leaflets grow in threes or is it just the photo?

    The currant could also be an edible one. If the flowers early in the summer are showy, the bet is on a flowering one, perhaps King Edward? If the flowers are modest, you might have a fruit crop coming soon.

    Really grateful for all these replies.
    4 does not produce edible fruit (I have another larger one in the back garden) so flowering currant must be right. Thanks Pete.

    Receiving such a great response has got me enthusiastic to learn more. - so here are a few more plants from the back garden:
    5 a smallish shrub with small, pink flowers: ( with some hollyhock flowers peeping through below!)

    6 a shrub which did have large red, flowers on it last month. Leaves not looking too good actually.IMG_20210714_112711.jpg
    7 a small bushIMG_20210714_112813.jpg
    8 a young tree perhaps?IMG_20210714_112855.jpg
    9 a very similar plant to 7 but larger, has many buds on it (unlike 7) andthe leaves are slightly serrated at the edges ( unlike 7)IMG_20210714_112919.jpg
    10 a shrub with red berries and yellow flowers (i have a couple of these)IMG_20210714_141530.jpg
    Thanks again for all the help so far
