If the foliage is in good condition, then yes, the plant needs its leaves to feed itself. You could judiciously remove any dead or dying leaves, but do not completely defoliate the plants at this time of year.

Certainly a Sorbus. The berries which are edible come from S. edulis. the ones on other types may be edible, but they are often very acidic and medicinal.

Buxus microphylla is another fairly low growing type of Box too. I have a golden leafed one which is only about 18 inches after 12 years and never been cut.

Ours flowers well every year, but only produced fruit once. We cut it back to the trellis every year to keep it in bounds.

Now ours has flowered as normal this year. And we certailny did not get and decent weather to ripen the wood last year. Never actually pruned mine either, so cannot help there.

Try giving it a good feed, general purpose now and high potash in Spring.

Sounds like what we used to call Dog Daisies. Leucanthemum vulgare. That has fern like feathery leaves and whote diasy flowers. Or of course it could also be Feverfew, Tanacetum parthenium.

Quince. The shrub must be Chaenomeles japonica and those are the fruits. Not the true Quince which is Cydonia, but an acceptable alternative when making Quince jelly or Marmalade.

Not ripe yet though!

Polygonatum x hybridum. Many of these plants are now being moved to Disporopsis
