Can you help identify these plants please?

I don't think it's Cornus alba 'Sibirica', as that cultivar of Cornus alba has bright red stems. Cornus sericea ' Flaviramea' has yellow or bright green stems. It is a cultivar of Cornus alba, though. Probably C. alba 'Elegantissima', since there's a hint of red on the stem and branches.

Can you help identify these plants please?

I agree with Nutcutlet, that last photo, nr.9 is some ssp. of Viburnum plicatum.

Rhododendron ponticum leaf problem

Linda, try googling Phytophthora cinnamomi + Rhododendron as well as Phytopthora ramorum + Quickthorn and have a look at the pictures coming up. If your plants look like that, I'm afraid you might have a problem.

Have a look at Cupressus sempervirens cultivars, I have a feeling you´ll find it there

Lucky sister!! These Salvia's even look good after flowering, but can  sometimes suffer from powdery mildew. I always cut them back if that happens. And they love their soil dry, very dry even. At least , that's my experience

It's Salvia verticillata, might be S. verticillata 'Hannay's Blue'

I think it could be a Primula species, Primula beesiana maybe?

Problem With Pear Tree

It looks like Pear leaf blister mite. Read more about it here:

If the infestation is severe, it is possible that the young fruit is infected.

A very fast growing climber to cover cherry tree by this summer

If you like white flowers you could try growing Solanum jasminoides, Potato vine up the tree. It behaves like an annual, as it's frost tender but it's certainly growing fast.

Types of Sage

Could be Satureja montana ? That's what it looks like to me. If you brush with your hand through the plant it should smell a little like Thyme.

@Edd, at second thought I think you're right with it being Thyme 'Jekka'. Judging from the leaves it can't be Satureja.
