can you get a bit closer so we can see the shape of the flowers and leaves. It's just a blur when enlarged

dead branches can be cut off anything, I would make a clean cut,back to healthy wood, rather than breaking off. Don't leave stumps.

I missed the Hosta 

Some are more susceptible to slug damage that others. I don't know how what that one is.

Everything s happier in the ground than in a container. You haven't got anything there that needs anything particular re soil.

I'd cut the straggly bits of the hebe, put it in a bigger pot, loosen up the roots an bit and add some new compost round it. Maybe plant it out in autumn or spring.

The one that neither Punkdoc nor I could name is a weed, you have a spare pot.

All would benefit from separating of different plants and repotting but I wouldn't do it while it's hot. Any of them can be planted out from autumn.

sorry. I missed the pot with the cotoneaster

Anyone able to identify attached shrub?

the top one has a hypericum, possibly the native Tutsan, the orange flower is Fox and Cubs or similar name (Pilosella aurantiaca)

Next, the grey leaves are a Hebe

Then a phygelius

then a little weedy thing I can never remember the name of, someone will

Then the Campanula persicifolia with a hellebore and an ash seedling (last pic the same)

The hellebore might be H.niger or one of the hybrids of it. 

what is this flowering shrub?

Posted: 19/06/2017 at 10:33

A philadelphus, I don't know which one either 

I don't like the smell of most of them
