3 is definitely Phygelius, I have it spreading everywhere! I think 2 could be Weigela, but the photos arent clear enough.

I think no 4 is a Hebe.

Where do you buy your early-flowering bulbs from?

J.Parker never had a problem with them. They do special offers.

Prunus Laurel

They do lose some leaves, they don't usually need anything they are very tough. I would chop about 6 inches off the tops of all the stems, that will promote new fresh growth from the bottom and make a thick hedge.

Usually pests on these don't last long, shame you sprayed the spiders, they would probably have eaten the greenfly.

Probably not pollinated. Pick them off they will be fine now.

Help needed please with laurel hedge issues...

The laurel doesn't grow from the stalks you cut down, it grows all new growth from that old stem. Give us an update in a months time so we can compare.

Just poke the prunings in a pot or in a spare bit of ground, just like you would do with roses. Do a lot, then if you lose some, it doesn't matter.  I have them on a bank, just poked in the soil and left.
