Hello all, good to see you here!

It sounds like you have an insect infestation of some sort. Have a good look at the underside of the leaves with a magnifying glass - it may be scale insect, small white or brown limpet-like creatures. If there are only a small number you can wipe them off; larger infestations can be treated with Provado Ultimate Bug Killer.

There should be a link within the email - copy and paste that into your address bar and that should take you to the thread.

Drought is a possibility, although fancy tulips often don't last more than a year or two before disappearing.

What's the weather like in your area?

Frank, do you think you could keep your showers up there? I got drenched coming home at lunchtime.

And now, of course, the sun is shining...

You really need to move it away from the heater.

If you can't, you can try sitting it, in its base, on a large tray of damp pebbles.

They won't re-grow from any bits of roots left, if that's what you mean. A lot of their roots are near-surface, but they do spread quite far - if they are really large you might find it hard work.

It depends which herbs they are - some are much hardier than others. Rosemary is of Mediterranean origin, so not that tough, especially not in a pot with no real root protection.

What to do!!

You really need to introduce curves into your garden, shaping he lawn into something other than a rectangle. Then you could probably benefit from a few "focal points" in the form of trees or large shrubs; once you have these, you can design around them.

I'd agree with figrat - try and get some cuttings going, they do root easily. It doesn't sound like your plant is very healthy at all.
