oh the saga of dug up bulbs! it happens to us all when we are messing about in the garden. Some bulbs are pretty obvious - crocus - daffodills and so on, but there are many that are easily confusible. My solution is to pot them up and top the pot with a little gravel so that rain does not disturb the soil. I then sink the pots in a bit of unused garden and wait and see what comes up. You can then site the pots exactly where you think they ought to be and plant the contents out.
Personally I would bin the cherry - you have no idea what variety it is and it will take years to grow into anything worthwhile.
If you want cherry laurel, those bits should grow away and give you a hedge.
