    Bit confused image, but I'll give it a go image

    We're talking about Euonymus fortunei....yes?

    Leaf drop issue:  Were the plants well watered after planting? Newly planted shrubs need extra watering until they establish a good spread of roots into the soil.  Could be a reaction to drying out.

    Mushrooms:  Can't see any in the pics, but probably just normal fungal growth, breaking down the bark mulch.

    Stem problem:  Could be mildew or Euonymus scale insect. Can't see clearly in the pics. Here's a link to the rhs page with more info....

    Thanks Paul.  Fortunately I am fluent in gobbledygook ?.  It's my first language, English is my second ???.
