Are the leaf edges serrated - they seem to be? Could it be a fruit pip/stone?

Clematis and roses

You should be fine. If you have fungal problems, it's often a sign of clean air, believe it or not - city pollutants kill some fungi. A major example of this is rust on hollyhocks.

Try giving them some tomato food if you're not doing so already, and they really should be outside by now, spreading their roots. If last year's winter is anything to go by, you have plenty of time yet.

Provided the roses aren't disease-ridden in any way, I think the main problem would be that the soil is lacking in nutrients.

Sad hydrangea :-(

When you say you've given them fertilizer, you don't mean you've put dry concentrate in direct contact with their roots, do you?

And do their containers have good drainage?

Verdun, you beat me to the second question!

Whats happened to my sunflowers?

Hmmm. Well, they look as though the head has just folded over from the picture, which would be lack of water pressure. Various obvious reasons for that which I'm sure you already know, but still:

is the soil over-dry, causing them to wilt? Is it soaking wet, so roots have rotted?

Less obvious, perhaps - have you checked all ties, so the stem isn't being cut into anywhere?

have you checked around the base of the stem for signs of slug damage? As with clematis, they can eat around the stem and kill it.
