Reviving an old slightly tired garden

Looking at the shape of your apple, I think you can train it in a fan shape. You need to put up some wires to secure your branches to and trim any vertical shoots. If you have a side of your garden the gets all the sun, plant it against the relevant fence.

You could try eleagnus or pyracantha or a viburnum or hazel or cotinus (smoke bush)

Small garden needs help

Your big plants really dominate and taking them out would be a solution and give you a feel of more space straightaway. Your bay tree could be dug out and planted in a pot and you could topiarise it to keep it manageable. You can also grow some veggies in amongst your plants. Or even in pots. An annual patch you can change year on year and use hot colours - Cannas, californian poppy, all sorts. And don't forget that there is a seed swap thread so you may find something there.

Shrub ID

This has been growing in our hawthorn hedge and this year decided to be 12ft tall with read berries. I thought it migh be a pyracantha but not sure which one as there are no thorns.

Mystery plant at the bottom of my garden. I've never seen this before and it isn't something I planted.
