Help - Plant ID for new project
I wonder if I can call on your lovely fellow gardeners for some advice please? Some friends of mine have just taken over a cafe with a lovely outside space with quite a few established shrubs - some of which have been cut back quite hard by previous owner before they left.
They've asked me - as the most greenfingered person they know - to help them tidy it up and plant up the bare spaces.
I want to ID what is there and get some advice on dealing with some of the 'stumps' before I plan what to put in.
I have quite a few pictures across 8 sections of the garden so I may post those in individual replies to make it easier for responses. I hope someone can help.

1.1 - This is a hard cut back 'stump' on the right (above) with this little green spikey bit growing out. Any ideas? Will it come back or should I get rid?
1.2 - This is a clumped together climber in a pot. Not sure if it's a clematis or jasmine type? No flowers at the moment but again has been cut back as I think overgrown.
1.3 - small shrub on far left - some kind of box?
There is a rather large Hypericum (St Johns Wort) and a fuchsia on the right side of this also which have been cut back rather hard also.
