Identifying plants in a new garden

BatNixBatNix Posts: 9

Hello
I have recently moved house and have inherited a well kept garden, but I am a novice gardener who doesn't yet know very much. I was hoping you could all help me identify these plants so I can find out a little more about how to keep them!
There's a few, sorry. Thanks so much!

(Hm, this looks like a broken link... I'm not sure what I've done. I'll try posting and see what happens....)

    Thanks Darren. I've just realised how unhelpful these pictures are, the detail isn't great! I've just googled Camellia and it definitely has the same dark green glossy leaves. I guess flowers over summer might make identifying most of these a lot easier!

    Not sure about camellia on the first, those new shoots look like Eleagnus ebbingeii.

    Goodness, there's a million more appearedimage

    2 looks like a spirea, 4 could be another spirea, 5 is spirea possibly bridal wreath. Tree looks like amelanchier lamarkii, and 3 looks like an eleagnus ebbingii. Nutcutlet  is our resident expert in IDs. Lovely she is too.

    Plant 5 is Spirea - Bridal Wreath probably. No 2 looks like a Spirea as well, but it's a bit blurry so tricky to be sure. Looks like it's growing habit though image

    No 4  (yellow one)  - looks like Forsythia but I can't see it very clearly either

    I think your tree is Amelanchier by the look of it  image

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    Didn't look at the first one I think nut is right it's glossy but the side shoots are wrong for a camellia.

    Oh my goodness, you are all amazing! They should bring back the Generation Game....

    I will take a couple more pictures tomorrow of the ones that are a bit blurry and far away.

    And wow, Amelanchier trees are beautiful, but massive!!
