Had a nice surprise today, was offered this aerial shot of the garden. Our property is the one on the right hand side of the image. And as, the Boss says, no washing out for once.

Clematis Montana Wilt

Molluscs do tend to rasp away at the stems and can devastate even an established Clematis. One of ours was damaged by the cat using it as a claw sharpening post.

One thing though is that it definitely is NOT Honey fungus. The yellow stuff is the sap from the Clematis itself. You would see a lot of other problems if it was Honey fungus.

Sounds more like mechanical damage than anything else. Something has damaged the stem at the base, either molluscs, or lawn mower or some such thing. The stem then leaks sap and dies back to the point of damage. They usually shoot from below the damage if they were planted deeply enough in the first place. Takes a while to get back to full size though.

Seed is easy, as long as you take it when it is still green, but comes off the plant easily. Sow immediately and keep cool, shady and moist and germination is in Spring.

Or, in September furtle round in the soil where the plants are growing and dig up some of the roots and replant them where you want more of them.

Please help me identify this plant

Hellebore looks rather like H. foetidus. Easy enough to tell, crush a leaf! If it stinks then it is foetidus

collecting ranunculus seeds?

The seed once sown does not need to be kept indoors. I put mine in a protected, shady spot outside over winter. Keep them watered though, if it goes dry. They should germinate in Spring,

Pictures?

Doubt very much if one is a Daphne, unless you are very very lucky. The yellow flowering Daphne do not normally survive too well outdoors in Britain.

I'm not sure what they are?

Sound like one of the mining bees. They do not normally sting. Leave them alone and they will soon disappear, once they have laid an egg and filled the hole with pollen for the developing grub.
