What are these Plants??

Philadelphus best pruned after flowering. Cut a third or so of the older stems right back to base. More will grow. Do the same next year and the year after and you'll bring it back to a smaller size.

If you cut all the branches back to a height to suit you now, you'll end up with what one forum member referred to as 'the shaving brush' effect. Lots of people do that and don't seem to mind a shapeless shrub as long as it flowers. So do whichever suits you.

Your part of the lilac may be suckers and younger. They could be the same as the neighbours' but might not be if the plants is grafted

the second is a birch seedlling

Why are my plants dying?

It has been dry and the plants look quite young. I think the heather might be OK, just the flowers going over.

Every day is too often to be watering plants at this time of year, they may have had too much. A good bucketful when they start to dry out, then leave them until they start ti dry out again

I don't know what that fern is but it doesn't look like one of the easy ones.

Old leaves can be cut off hellebores, the new ones look alright.

I would say darwinii is the more orange.

But the leaves of these two are different so if we could see the leaves clearly, no problem

Brute force and ignorance is what I use. Big Fork, big spade, maybe a mattock
