gypsophilia

its gypsophila but often gets an extra i.

There are many species, annual and perennial.

G. paniculata is the one I've seen being sold bare rooted in supermarkets and GC.

Hawthorn would be my choice as the main species. It cuts well to a hedge

I would leave out blackthorn, it's painful and it suckers.

Berberis

Dig around it and cut through roots as you find them, once you can rock it things  get easier.

Berberis won't get fireblight, wrong family.

Rosaceae get fireblight. Berberidaceae don't.

Diseases are generally specific to one family so it might be a good idea to choose something from another family to replace it

When did you plant them. I think they go better in the green in spring than dried out in autumn
