Thanks for your help all.
Not very clear photo but I've googled your suggestions.
Hebe, leucothe, gaultheria,euonymous, choysia and some kind of conifer seem to be what they are.
They were only £6.99 for the collection and I thought they'd give a bit of winter colour and then I'll plant them out next year.
I'm looking forward to Skyfall, Chris. I'm like you with traps but if the critters stayed where they are supposed to we wouldn't have to get rid of them. I've had a rat that has tunneled through the concrete floor of the chicken house. I set a trap and caught one that was killed cleanly but another was caught by it's leg and I had to kill it myself. i felt terrible especially as it had dragged the trap across the floor and would have suffered for some time.
