A few plant I.D's please
Lovely day out. I've just spent the morning pulling up sticky grass or whatever it's called, which I've noticed is everywhere. I've got a couple of plants to ID, I am wanting to know what they are because I want to work out whether they need pruning, as I want to get the best out of them.
1) This first one makes up part of my hedge.
2) This second one grows quite tall and I want to know if I can prune it to make it more bushy.
Thank you in advance!
