Okay, here we go first picture -

 I have a few of these at the side of the house. I need some of the space for a small shed. Is it safe to just dig up and move them back a few feet?

Other concern is how big will they grow and will the roots start to disturb the foundations of the house?

I have lots more taken, I will post one at a time to avoid confusion. I will take notes as/when you guys respond.

Below is a picture from the back windo so you get a feel for the layout etc.

 This one was taken a year ago so everything has grown since then. I would be happy to keep it neat and tidy like this pic, just now it looks too over crowded due to the growth.

Thanks again all

Thank you for the messages of support so far. If weather permits i will get some pics taken tomorrow of what is visible.

I will post one picture at a time to avoid confusion, if someone could tell me how to trim and when that would be great.

Hi All,

I moved home earlier this month and i have inherited a garden with lots of shrubs & bushes etc. You can likely tell from my opening sentence i don't have a clue what they are or how to care for them.

The last house i move to was well kept by a keen gardener. I pulled everything out and made it easier to maintain. I do regret that and dont want to repeat the same mistake through ignorance.

If i posted pics could someone identify them and point me in the right direction? i dont want to start trimming them if it isn't the right time of the year etc.

Thanks in advance
