    Can you help identify this shrub ?

    The tallest plant is the willow, best to remove it completely if you can, otherwise it will just regrow.

    I don't know what this is but it's not doing well!

    Thanks all for replies, other than a very light tidy up I've never really pruned them so maybe cutting back quite hard will encourage new growth and thickening.
