I agree with toxic drip. I have well established hornbeams. The ones in dryer soil in the teeth of the prevailing wind are always yellower and most years, not this wet one, brown edged as well.
I'd cut some of the branches right back and leave the rest til another year.
I can't really see how the branches have been cut. It's best not to leave stumps, so if any branches have been cut leaving a piece behind, cut those off. A branch always dies back if bits are left beyond the last growing parts, (leaves or buds).
just google Stocks and you'll get a selection.
Good idea Boris.
I wouldn't go too late, evergreens are generally best moved when they can grow and get established, spring or early autumn.
I can't see any mess GD
I think that's too much to ask of a large plant, I'd take sanjy's advice
I think you're right Dave,
Agree with Ladybird on all. It's a shrub potentilla, P. fruticosa so the leaves are ok
Himalayan Honeysuckle is what the Leycesteria is aka for some reason
