    Hi @Gail_68 ,the first one could be a Emerald Gold Euonymus, but it's difficult as I can't clearly zoom in.

      It could be some kind of dwarf broom.

            Despite the photo not being that clear I reckon it's a very good guess @pete. If they are dwarf Brooms the plants should produce lots of seed pods which will eventually turn almost black and split open. Broom is usually quite sort lived and unfortunately doesn't respond very well to being pruned in my experience.

              @pete Just looked up Dwarf Brooms and your correct mate...this pic is off the net but identical to the plant without flowers and when they're starting to flower plus the pods do nearly turn black as @silu as mentioned but you do have a great show with them :cheers: mate :)

              Hi @silu I've always trimmed mine and they've been ok and last year I had to thin them out a bit as they was growing wide covering the garden lights...I have 5 in total across the decking front. :)
