    The shrub looks like a cornus (bit hard to tell but ... )  usually grown for lovely colour of the young stems in the winter.  Cut it hard back to about 12" high (called coppicing)  in the spring and it'll grow new long whippy branches ... when the leaves fall next autumn the new young stems should be a glorious red image

    The plant in the red pot is a houseplant ... Crassula  ... 

    If you want to keep it I'd repot it and  take it indoors.  It'll die outside in the cold and wet.

    Not sure about the last one.

    Picture C looks like it could be Euphorbia Characias Wufenii. Best to take picture F with the root area or full shot of the pot.

    Interesting plant there. Still very hard to tell. Looks like a cutting from a Rhododendron or even a type of Hebe. I can't tell from the stems. You could just prune them back to see how it goes. Keep them inside a greenhouse if you have one. It could be a houseplant. Unfortunately with very little leaf it's hard to identify.
