Close up of the flowers would help.


Could be a Helianthus or maybe a Rudbeckia.

Scale insects.


Try spraying with a Horticultural soap insecticide. Reasonably organic and harmless to bees.

Definitely a weevil, but not the dreaded Vine type.

Picture of the leaves might help. Not had yellow patches on any of mine either. Lost a fair number this Summer, we have had so little rain here that anything which likes a dampish soil,has really suffered.

All members of the Apiaceae or Umbelliferae, commonly known as the celery, carrot or parsley family, have the potential to cause photo-sensitivity in susceptible people.


Radish leaves give me a rash.

Sedums, Geums, Heuchera,Heucherellas. Tiarella, Fuchsia. Primula. Having said that ,they usually do more damage to plants in pots rather than out in the garden.

Snowdrop bulbs

Soak the Snowdrops in water with a little fungicide in it (if you have any) and plant in pots rather than in the ground. That way you at least will know if they are growing.


Sadly all the Aconites on sale as bulbs are functionally dead. Buy them in the green or find someone with a patch who can let you have some freshly dug bulbs.


The cyclamen on sale as dried tubers are often difficult to get going. I would go for plants myself.


Pity you do not live near me, you could help yourself to all the above with pleasure.
