and some more needing identification

Bottom one could be salvia, may need to see if it flowers and it may be more identifiable, looks a bit like mint too :-)

Top one looks familiar, but can't place it. Second one might be a Kerria japonica, but then might not!
The third one I thought might be the Common Hemp-nettle, but now think it might be Hedge woundwort (Stachys sylvatica) another weed/wild flower with purple spikes.
Best of luck with your massive clear-out.

You'll have a much better chance of identification if you can wait until they flower.

Snap Honeysuckle, you beat me to it - pretty sure that's it.

Just wondering whether the very overgrown area in the top pic is ground elder? Lets hope not.

Anybody think the first one could be meadow rue, Ruta graveolens?

The top one could be Lovage - leaves smell like celery when crushed. Bottom one is Stachys sylvatica, as others have said. It stinks!
