Got any fruit trees nearby? It looks like it could be a sucker from fruit tree root stock.

Talkback: Growing camellias

Your plant will grow and thrive if happy. Make sure you give it a feed after it has flowered - use food for camelias/rhododendrons/azaelas which is sold in all good GCs. The other thing I would say is don't let it go short of water in the autumn when it makes its buds for next year's flowers and you should have a lovely show next year.

I agree. The first one is an Astilbe. Sorry don't know the second but someone will...

good morning everyone

As Dave has said depends which conifer and how much you are taking off. Some conifers will not regrow if you cut too far back. If you post a photo someone should be able to advise you better.

Who's poo? (Hedgehog?)

I put out ready made hedgehog food which looks like cat biscuits with the catchy title of ...'The Right Food For ...Hedgehogs'  which is very popular with my hedgehogs. Available from big branches of Tescos and Wilkos.

Climber for shady wall?

I can't see the leaves clearly but if you post another picture of the leaves, I'm sure we could identify it for you. It looks like an evergreen. I'm guessing but maybe a pyracantha...

Are you sure that is a climbing hydrangea opposite? Mine is only just coming into leaf and the foliage is much brighter than yours.

Has it been water logged over winter? This could have caused its leaves to drop. If not, give it a good feed and mulch with organic matter.

The shrub you have is a winter flowering jasmine - jasmiine nudiflorum.It will respond well to being cut hard back now if you want to keep some of it.

You could plant a climbing Hydrangea  - Hydrangea petiolaris

 which like the jasmine can be cut back to keep it close to the wall and shaped around the windows. Bright green foliage followed by white panicles of flowers in May , yellow foliage in autumn and a tapestry of rich brown branches in winter. Takes some time before it clings to the wall my itself but grows quite quickly.
