Can anyone identify?

They look like seedlings of a tree or shrub. How about Prunus laurocerasus to match the dead leaves in the photo?

Is my Rowan tree dead?

Also in the South East, mine is pretty much in full leaf with flower buds 

See original post

 Mine too

I fear that's dead or dying 

In the top pics the two branches to the right are dead, they have a browny look.

For future trees, branches don't like to be cut like that. Prune back to the main trunk, stumps always die back and that's where infection sets in

In the middle pic, those ridges along the twig are a sign of death, shrivelling up

seeds like mad doesn't it. But not enough of a plant to be a nuisance

 Yeah. I hope we'll see some more photos of this as it grows.

I can't see any fungi of any sort, where are they?

your pic is Fireglow, Anni but the OP doesn't look like any euphorbia to me

What is this and what should I do with it?

Posted: 05/04/2017 at 09:16

to upload a photo, reduce the size of the photo as the site doesn't accept large images and start with the camera icon on the right above the typing box. Essential if you want to know what the shrub is and how to treat it. If it had white ball shaped flowers earlier, what you're seeing now will bracts maybe, not more flowers

Growing above a soakaway?

Outflow from a septic tank?

Where was consensus formed. A septic tank soakaway is several feet down. What kind of 'nasties' do you think a vegetable might take up? They won't absorb bacteria or intestinal worms and you wash root veg so anything that might conceivably be on the surface is gone. 

We've got too sterile and frightened of our own shadows and s**t

If you cut it down it will grow back unless it's dead

no quick fix, the upper part is dead and needs to come off
