Anemonopsis macrophylla

With most things it would have worked PP. It may still be OK if it likes where you've  put it

Is this trying to die?

I'd pot them on and if they're totally pot bound, which is likely fif they've been thrown out, I'd take my gardening dinner fork and tease out the roots a bit. Then I'd give them a bigger pot and some gritty compost, a good watering and leave them alone til they dried out before they got more water.

It's a lovely plant but very fussy about soil and atmosphere. Moisture but not wet.

Mine lasted 2 seasons

You could try cutting some of the leaves off so there aren't so many to support

Could the new growth have been frosted do you think? I can see that it's new tips on the laurel but I can't tell with the ivy. 

We had a hard frost  couple of weeks ago that browned off some new growth. I can't see the pyracantha properly but my laurel is looking a bit like that in places. 

The other thing that upsets new growth is chemicals. Not necessarily yours.
