    Yes, silverweed is definitely a low growing plant
    Definitely looks like silverweed to me. There's loads growing on our local woodland in the clearings. My buns will eat it but only after everything else so not a favourite.

    Have you compared pictures of Goat Willow to your leaves on the left?

    I find it in the wild everywhere here. It's one of my very common finds. But yes, it is a low-growing plant, the leaves are so soft when cut. The picture looks like a leaf that has been cut for a short while to me.

    Number 1 is annoying me as I'm sure that's what I saw the other day... could it be black horehound? Though the leaves look a little sparse... it's the closest match in my books, though the leaves look more like red hemp-nettle.

    Gosh, these aren't readily identifiable either

    No 1, I think is a Figwort of some sort. My first choice would be Betony from the books. If not, it's possibly a Woundwort, but it's not the Woundwort we get here (Hedge). Woundworts are fine for rabbits and I would "think" Betony is also OK, but I've never found it here, nor have I looked it up for rabbit-OKness.

    No 2, is one of the Campion family and I think I've narrowed it down to Soapwort, although again I've never found it here. No idea if it's OK for rabbits. Campions are but, don't know about Soapworts.

    No 3 - don't know. I'll have a think and a discussion with OH as he might know.
