Ooh - good shout Dimwit. I thought it looked too 'twiggy' for that.

I'm on the ball today Jess 

Ribes can be cut right back after flowering

The berberis can be trimmed a bit if it needs it, I'd leave it alone

Forsythia, after flowering cut some of the older stems right back to base and leave the rest alone. You get a better shape like that.

I can't get a clear view of the yellow one, looks like a pea of some sort

Identification with these evergreen plants?

The shrub is a Fatsia 

The grassy stuff looks horribly like Carex pendula

You can cut off any rough looking leaves or dig it all up after the flowers have finished, replant the best bits

I think mine are early compared to some. 

Last year, when we had that huge NYD flower count, I had a couple of blossoms on the cherry plum, But always by February.

My cherry plums have been and gone, GD probably had hers before Christmas

well, maybe that's a slight exaggeration
