Are your lilies showing regrowth Aaron
I wouldn't dig, I'd mulch with something. Bark, compost, shreddings.
I suspect weeds from the country of origin. If you know where they came from (before Poundland) it might be worth looking through a list of native plants for the area. They don't look garden-worthy and probably won't be in a gardening book.
I don't think many plants like to be suspended in water, let it dry out a bit between waterings. They don't like warm rooms and sunny windowsills. The green stuff says it's too wet.
Take a few more photos if you get a chance.
The main stems included
I still think lonicera but not nitida or pileata
I'd like to be left for the kites and buzzards, ants and fungi
but I'm not willing to donate my body to rats.
Can someone design me something to help achieve this aim
re your comparison to Lonicera nitida.
I wonder if it is a species of lonicera, the stems and buds look more like lonicera than snowberry to me.
Not one I recognize though, sorry
apart from the shoot they look like something that smells bad
Have you squeezed them? If they're rotten they'll be soft. Or will become soft
If they look healthy they should be OK. Give them a couple of years in the hottest spot you can find and see how they do. Shading out stops them flowering but it won't kill them immediately
