Hi everyone.A while since I have been here.
I had a lovely little bush which I planted last year but now it looks like it is dead.Can anyone tell me if it might revive.
There are some little green shoots on it.Do not have a pic as it was,with little yellow flowers and small red berries.




I can't think at this moment as to what the plant might be (perhaps Hypericum). Now, I would wait a little longer 'till the spring frosts are over. The old foliage will give the new growth some protection and then I would cut back just above the new growth and that should do the job.

I agree Jimmytheone.
There's a stem and a few leaves that look like Hypericum towards bottom left. Mine are looking pretty dowdy at the moment too but I know from experience that it's hard to kill the little so and so's.

well you say it has little green shoots so its isn't dead. it does look like an Hypericum in the photo. advice given re pruning is what I plan to do with mine.

If it has little green shoots it isn't dead.

Thank You everyone for your replies.
I am so pleased that it might not be dead as it is a pretty little plant.

Was planning on digging it up bit will wait and see what happens now.
Keeping my fingers crossed.
