un known succulent plants

I fine they respond well to a total haircut in late winter and look much better for it.

They do reach weed level if you let them seed. I don't know if it's native or naturalised but it's a wild plant, Tutsan

The hypericum in the title is a shrub, not the invasive rooty one. The bottom part gets very woody. If you're willing to risk a pruning saw you could try sawing down the middle. It's tough.

It will seed about and save you the bother if you wait

Not the best time but I think I'd move it from soggy conditions. Take it with as much soil as you can so it's not too much of a shock

I wouldn't rush to do anything. Let them find their feet. Feed when growth starts again next season

tools missing in action (MIA)

A pair of secateurs spent over a year in the compost heap, was renovated by OH only to be put through the shredder the following year. 

A saw left hanging in a tree for 2 years is beyond renovation
