abelias are lovely, scented, better if not variegated. Pruned as KOG suggests they keep a good shape.

I thought the dip-dyed heathers were as low as we could go but these are worse

I don't go for mixes. It's Ok if they crocuses and daffs say, you can sort them out. But a mix of different daffs doesn't look as good as a group of one type imo. For one thing they probably won't flower at the same time. Nothing flowers on the same day every year, some are more weather dependent than others. You see a pic of a nice combination on a packet but what you see in the garden is one type, then a couple of weeks later, the other,

Having said that I bought a pack of reduced mixed species tulips last week

But that's a bit brief compared to the nothingness of the leaves

will I get lynched if I say day-lilies are hugely over-rated. 

what are these please

I think the first is one of the variegated abelias

Not everything needs a lot of trimming and pruning. I'd let those grow for a while. They're not the sort of plant that looks good pruned to a shape and you'll probably not get flowers

The second could well be a very sad hebe, the stems look right the leaves are the wrong colour. They may improve with the new compost. I wouldn't keep that one.

good idea Denwyn, always beware of a large clump of anything being offered for free. 

I dug up and chucked (or gave away  ) most of my day lilies a couple of years ago.
