what wrong with my hydrangea?

That's why I don't grow them. I can offer food but it's too dry here for them to make a good show.

It looks starved and dehydrated to me

ID Please & Advice

If the hedge is still alive it's a survivor.

I wonder if it's Lonicera nitida rather than box, somewhat similar leaves and a more likely choice of hedge in that sitruation. I can see some bramble there as well.

If it is L. nitida it will take a very severe haircut and grow back, provided it's not too far gone

Good luck

Agree with Buttercup, not sure which one that is but a willowherb for sure

The reason I'm not weeding

I have a fine collection of what some would call weeds. I have a formerly huge, now shrinking figwort, being demolished by the fattest mullein moth caterpillars I've ever seen. If you want real wildlife (not just bees on the flowers), you need some weeds

Identify this flower please

Yes, that looks right, the leaves are a bit variable,

Moving a log pile

Nothing will be hibernating but the larvae of ground beetles etc might be there. The big thing with wildlife habitats is to leave them alone, a wood pile includes the area right at the bottom and into the soil. We have a regular dilemma with the firewood pile, I have heaps set aside for wildlife but wildfife prefers what OH had set aside for the wood-burner

agree with fritillary on 1, Eupatorium cannabinum, hemp agrimony

one of the persicarias for 2. Persicaria campanulata maybe.

That last one has a very white underside and I wonder if it's coltsfoot, Tussilago farfara. But maybe butterbur has that as well, I haven't got any  to check
