We moved in to a new house last year and are just getting round to tackling the garden. Could anyone help identify these plants? Both are evergreen and the first flowers. TIA

    What, @Busy-Lizzie you need photos to ID plants now? I thought you were a "voyante extra-lucide". ;)

    Evergreen, first flowers, could be Skimmia?

    I don’t seem to be able to upload them from my phone sorry. Will try on the laptop later.

    No worries @jo.rbh , thought it was me, to be honest,  was going to check on my pc just in case!  Welcome to the forum by the way  :)

    This is the flowering plant. Seems relatively stable at this size. I was thinking a type of Azela but I’m a gardening beginner!
    This one is evergreen but no flowers. It was much larger and we’ve cut back significantly. I thought this might be a variety of holly.

    Second one is a mahonia ... lovely scented yellow flowers in the winter ... possibly you pruned the potential flowers off ... bug never mind ... feed it with Fish, Blood &’Bone fertiliser (according to directions on the pack) and you should get plenty of  flowers next winter. 😊

    The first one looks like a camellia, I could be wrong though.

    2nd, I agree, is a Mahonia, an early flowering shrub. Isn't that a yellow flower on the right under the leaves?

    That’s just a flash of yellow from a nearby eunonymus...the previous owner seemed to be rather fond of them 🙄
