Just moved and getting stuck into my first garden. Was hoping someone would be able to help me identify this plant.
There are 2 large ones in the garden, taking up a lot of border space. Don't look very attractive at moment, but no idea if it had flowered earlier in the year. Would hate to remove something if it's got the potential to be nice.
Thanks

Looks like a hazel tree that's been coppiced at some stage. Not really suitable for a normal sized garden. You could cut it down in the winter and use the poles in the garden - for a sweet pea wigwam if they're thick enough, or as border edging looped over in half moons if they're thin and pliable.

Would treat the stump with stump killer as they're going to be difficult to dig out.
