I’ve had this in the garden for a couple of years but have no idea what it is
. It has quite nice leaves but it’s just sort of spindly and falling over. I’m not sure if it’s supposed to be growing upwards and I should support it or if it’s spreading outwards... any ideas?

As B3 says , maybe train against the fence using small staples ; lose the spreading foreground branches . Cotoneasters are valuable to insects and birds , the nectar-rich flowers and(later on) the berries, are irrestistable to most species .
