Does anyone have any ideas please? And keep or dig up and replace?

They look like daylilies. I would keep them.

Second one looks like rhododendron. I’m not a fan of those, but many people really like them- and they can be expensive to buy.

keep the day lilies, but dig then out and divide them early next spring. They seem like quite the clump.

I'd just tidy the garden as best I could for the first year; you might have all sorts of bulbs and perennials in there. See what you've got before you set about it with a spade.

Wait untill they flower, then see if you like them.

My new neighbour was very admiring of my peonies. She was a bit crestfallen when I told her that when they moved in and dug up the plants they had inherited, they had chucked out all the peonies in their own front garden.

Are my first two photos the same plant?

Yes I agree these are very bunched together, how best to have them if I dug them up and replanted?

I wouldn't do it now, I might be wrong, but I think it's a bit late, they are already growing nicely.

Day lilies can wait for a year or two.

You just dig them out, split with the shovel in a few smaller clumps and replant where you want them. I did it a few weeks ago with mine, they are on the edge of a border.

The second one has flowered and looks so pretty

That is an azalea. My guess for the first plant is iris.

I always wait a full year and see what I’ve got first. Planters and containers are good, you shuffle them around until you’re happy and then plant in the ground. That can take several years!

Could the first one be crocosmia?
