Need plant I-D please.

Think you're right Bob. The little bit of foliage right at the bottom left of the pic  looked so familiar but I just couldn't place it. Haven't grown them for years.

Pruning will depend on the individual plants you have Jack unless you want to remove something completely. There's a house near me which has a hydrangea in the front garden. I've passed it regularly for over fifteen years and it's never had a flower on it because it's  constantly pruned at the wrong time of year - they chop off all the flowering stems! I've often thought of putting a note through the door

Some seeds would be  lovely Stacey. That's very kind of you.

I think you should call him Steve.

Or Spencer

Looks like you may have a bit of pruning and relocating to do Jack!

Not sure of that last one but it looks like something I should know. Will get  thinking cap on

You should have a little tree icon at the right hand side of  the toolbar at the top of the window you post in. Just click on it and follow the instructions

The ones I have here are that size Stacey...

Love that really black one. I'm sure you don't really need it though, do you? I can give it a home.... 

chicky- sorry to be thick -  what does D of E mean?

Now that I look Dove - think you're right about  Honeysuckle. In fact, I inherited a rather sad, neglected looking one here which will be coming out!

Should have gone to Specsavers

Bergenia I'd say. It's evergreen and has spikes of pink  (most commonly) flowers grouped at the top in spring. There's a white one as well. Often called Elephant's Ears - for obvious reasons!

If you google the names Jack, you'll get lots of pix of the plants in their full glory which will help you too.

Your second pic looks like one of the Viburnums - possibly Eve Price? Are there any buds on it? It flowers at this time of year.

I'd agree that the last one looks like a Cornus -dogwood. it will have nice foliage later but they're mainly grown fr the coloured stems in winter Jack. They get pretty big but you can cut back, although they're at their best if they have room to show off their stems properly.

If you can take a pic and put it onto a thread here that will help ID it Duncan.

I've never heard of a copper Birch either so I'd guess it's the Prunus, but a photo will help confirm it for you
