More Plant I-D's please.

Would agree with nut on everything there Jack, though I wouldn't have known Abelia and woodrfuff. 8 looks rhododendron- ish but to be honest, there's so little of it, it's hard to tell - it could be lots of things. It may have been planted and just hasn't had the right conditions or enough room to establish correctly or it could be something that's seeded itself in there. Many of the plants do seem quite congested so you may need to do a bit of clearing to get the best from the ones you want to keep.

Did you mean the flowering currant Stacey - ribes - that flowers in spring?

Had a quick look at RHS site- seems they are hardy so I must have been having a senior moment nut! 

Is there no sign of life? Would have thought you'd have had a shoot or two by now if it's reasonably mature and established.

Not 100% sure nut - maybe I'm wrong. Will have a little look around- perhaps I'm thinking of something else

Saw Mr Petty many years ago Dove. He was stunningly brilliant.   The J du P programme would have been a repeat I expect - Sky Arts channel. You can't have Placido Dove - I saw him first...

I don't have an i pod ( or an 'aye' pod ) so I have to take a radio or cd player outside with me but I'm also very aware of keeping it at an acceptable level.

He'd make a good roast though Dove.....

trillium's right - sandpaper the area a little, to get a key, as well before you apply anything 'sticky'.

But there's more of him to go round Dove so he's good value 'pound for pound'..........

Looks a bit like the ornamental pear - Pyrus salicifolius. It's a very pretty small tree - gets to a few metres or so  height and spread but you can prune it. I had one in a previous garden
