Hi, the only one I think I can identify is number 6 which is euphorbia- poisonous. Can't help with the others, sorry.

Numbers 1, 8 and 10 are, I would say, edible as I feed them to my tortoises. Number 10 is mallow but i can't remember the names of 1 and 8 !

No 1 Could be creeping Buttercup
No 6 Euphorbia
No 8 Sow Thistle
No 10 Mallow
No 11 Possibly Clematis

It is not easy to identify plants from individual leaves. Hope this helps a little
