Nice neighbour

A neighbour of mine is moving and has given me two plants in pots.  Could you name them please and how to look after them ?
Thank you.

    Can't help with ID, but in light of the current thread on nasty neighbours, it's good to be reminded that there are plenty of good ones!  I hope their new neighbours, and yours, will be just as kind and friendly, and keen gardeners!

    Hello All.
    Thank you for your replies.
    Good neighbours are a blessing and what you give you will receive in return.  I am lucky to have many gardening friends as neighbours.

    yep Freddiesdad is correct, I find they do better in semi shade, bit of ericacious compost round them,  agree, I will hold my hand up, have very "inconsiderate" neighbours one side, thankfully really great the other side, we have become friends and go out together, usually visiting gardens, pub sometimes.

    Thank you K67.
    Nanny Beach, thanks for the advice I have them in a sunny position, will have to move them into partial shade. Strange coincidence about your neighbours I am in the same position as you on one side.  No one likes them anyway because of their ways.  The other side we do what you do and enjoy our gardening and trips out.

    I have a lovely new neighbour too and thankfully she’s a keen gardener and we like the same kind of plants. There was a horrible laurel hedge between our gardens at the front that we both disliked, so we decided to pull it out and agreed to merge our borders that were either side of it. It looks really good and and would be easy to put the boundary back in if we ever fall out! My roses and delphiniums look much better from her side of the garden than mine😂
    Life's tragedy is that we get old too soon and wise too late.
