I have once called Royal Oak, the leaves are just like Oak, quite pretty, that doesn't, and there a few lemon scented ones, I have two different ones but I think there are more.

What is this and what should I do with it?

It's probably a Pieris, they are not red flowers, they will turn green later and next year start over again. 

If you don't want them you can put in the green waste collection bags if you have those, or take to the tip,

Please identify these plants

They are Hyacinths, they get smaller and smaller as the years go by,

The females are the ones with the green pod behind, it's those you remove.

Sounds like a Pieris. Pretty but I don't know about 5 in a small space.

You can fiddle around sterilising compost, giving heat, food and light for the little dears, just chuck a rotten tomato on your compost heap, you'll have lovely plants all over your garden next year. I don't put them in my compost for that reason,πŸ˜€

Why are my plants dying?!

Young new plants don't need extra fertiliser on planting.  Probably burning the roots, you could try putting them in pots until the ground had settled down a bit and some rain washed the nutrients through. 

I don't fertilise my garden, chicken pellets will put structure in your soil enabling it to make its own nutrients. theres so much talking of extra feeds in the soil, most a marketing con.

I have just finished using a packet of Roma, dated 1995. All germinated even though I'd had a few out each year.

More good guys

Just to add to above, they cost £17.00 for 66 plants and the free fuchsias and lily bulbs were beautiful.

sorry, edit doesn't workπŸ™„
