Is my evergreen dying?

Kelly, it's usual on here to have doughnuts after doing something strenuous like that - it's amazing how it helps

Perfect for a Fatsia japonica  http://www.telegraph.co.uk/gardening/howtogrow/3295666/How-to-grow-Fatsia-japonica.html an exotic and tropical looking shrub (just right to set the scene for outdoor eating) which is perfectly happy growing in almost total shade.

The yellow balls are likely to have been Osmacote fertiliser

These are slow-release fertiliser granules added to the potting compost.

As for the oregano - was it outside or indoors - my new oregano plant has been planted out in the garden for over a month, and I have others which have been out in the garden all winter and are fine.  

My first thought with dying oregano is always that it's been overwatered - it's a Mediterranean plant that needs gritty free-draining compost or soil and hates having it's feet damp all the time.

Can anyone identify this shrub/plant thankyou :) Two photos supplied

That looks to me like elder (Sambucus) that has been coppiced and what you have there is one year old growth.
