That's an ash. I'd disappear into an ash wood if I didn't keep weeding them out

what to do with overgrown area?

I'd cut some of the older stems right back. Then do the rest next year. That way you've still got a shrub for this year.

That's Mahonia aquifolium.

Hi Hefty

What are they?

The brown bits are root, bury them

The white bits would have been green bits in day light. Hard to say how deep without knowing what. Those white bits may turn green or die back, I'd nurture them for a while before you plant them out.

Hi B-L

I'm sure it's best to treat it as an annual most years. But that doesn't make it an annual. We barely had a winter here, a few flakes of snow and no prolonged frost.

Those companies probably class N affinis and sylvestris as annuals as well

Last year's from seed have come through the very mild winter without dying back

I think this might just be species diversity hollie. I can't tell which of mine will be white or purple this year but adding some pics anyway
