on the last lot

15 a cotoneaster

16 Yew

17. might be a baby sweet chestnut 

18 Cotoneaster horizontalis

19, the green shiny leaves are laurel, Prunus laurocerasus

I'll look again at the possible abelia

and I am pretty sure about the japanese anemones.

I think Blubell is right, that's not an abelia.

I think you'll have to find away of cutting it if it's going to look good. 

If it were mine I'd clear a bit at a time and plant up with something tough, lesser knapweed or dog daisies maybe and some cowslips. But everything in gardening needs attention. Wildflower meadows need cutting back at least yearly or they disintegrate into a mess. You could weaken the grass by sowing yellow rattle into it in the autumn.

re 7. I didn't think the leaves belonged to the sticky bits. If they do it's not japanese anemone

Very shrunken looking buds. I fear the worst About 4 years old, more if you count nursery time, 3 or 4 foot high

Ah well, plant fairs coming up soon

Maybe  I'll continue my boundary wildlife hedge through where it was, plenty of free seedlings around the place

If you've bought  one of the red stemmed dogwoods lily, bend a branch over and pin it down to the ground. You'll have 2 next year

Is it the sort of grass you cut back novice or is it just left to look after itself?

Are they Fg?, I didn't know that, probably dead then. Though it survived the last 2 winters.

A friend has one of small tree proportions and I assumed it was hardy. 

Thanks Fairy, another one for the shredder
