Do post a pic LLass. Does it take a lot of arm strength to pull out? 

what is this bush, anyone?

My money's on Viburnum as well. Not betting on which one though

When do I cut back my Hellebores?

I do mine about mid winter. I've done a few. The leaves on mine don't look very pretty by the time the flowers come round but they never all get done.

I don't think the branches fall off but they look like antlers in the winter. They seem to lack the fine branching that most trees have at the tips. The multiply divided leaves have a thick midrib, maybe some people think that's a branch falling off in autumn, I quite like them, I haven't got any but I might get one sometime. I think you need to accept the suckering and enjoy it. If you haven't got room for that don't get one.

I did try one out in my field but the muntjac hough it was for rubbing against, then there was nothing left and it died

they are grafted, some higher than others. It will be interesting to see what a cutting produces. Perhaps Salix caprea 'Horizontalis'

Neither of my loniceras are flowering but the viburnum is. Don't know if it's one of the x bodnantense cultivars or if it's V. frangrans. How do I tell the difference?

Even my compost mountain grows its own worms.  Spontaneous generation?

It never gets turned, I don't have the back/arm strength, but I try to mix as I build. It will take longer than a good heap but it gets there.

If that was a nice garden there are likely to be bulbs coming up in the spring. I'd just tidy up a bit, take the roses back  as artjak suggested, prune any deciduous bushes that look as though they need it, hang up some bird feeders and wait and see.
