Lewisia snapped away from roots...

Hi Siobhan

I think if that broke away as you unpacked it was either duff to start with or badly packed. Unless you know you were excessively rough with it I would contact the supplier and ask for  another or money back

Is this an Escallonia?

Could be Lizness. I'm pretty sure it's one of the small leave species fuchsias

What is this

There are loads of species and cultivars of spirea and I think you're right.

Hi fidget, I just need to give it a squeeze then I'd know

Have you had a look at beginner 14's plant? It's too late, he's dug it up. But  I do like to know

Is this an Escallonia?

I think it's a fuchsia, maybe thymifolia or another similar species 

If you enlarge and look top right you can see a seed pod. 

Hard to tell in a photo but in reality fuchsia has a much softer look and feel than escallonia

If you don't like it dump it cotty. I've nurtured things I don't really like for daft reasons; they're rare,  a friend donated them,  I grew it from seed and it took  ages

I'm more ruthless now

Identify my plant please
