Thanks nut cutlet and Bob the gardener, when it stops raining I think I'll chance it and dig Them in the garden.

at the end of spring last year I dug up 10 tubers and left them in the greenhouse to dry.  I then potted them up in September. I now have 10 healthy plants, but what do I do with them now.  Leave them in the greenhouse until spring or put them in the borders now.  As you can see I am a hit and miss gardener, so a little help goes along way.  Thanks

Thanks all, I think ill experiment and just cut them back, I've nothing more to lose.  If it doesn't work I will throw them away.

Thanks early riser, I don't think this is Downey mildew, as all leaves are green what are left and no mildew they just look leggy and the flowers and leaves are just falling so I have bare stems, do you think if I cut them back they may have a second flourish?

Thanks orchid lady, I think you have hit it on the head, but the earth doesn't feel wet just damp, do you think I should water them as the wind is probably drying them out.?

I have had beautiful displays of buzzy lizzies (in pots), but suddenly the blooms have gone, they look like they are dying.  Would anyone know if this could be over watering as we have had a lot of heavy rain recently.  Or maybe the opposite.  If not what am I doing wrong.  I have grown buzzy lizzies for years and they normally go onto late September.  If antone can help it would be most appreciated

Thanks dovefromabove, sorry I have been so long replying, but  I have just found you and five others on my ignore list, how you got there I do not know.  There was no sign of cat poo.  But since a good down pour nothing has been dug up since. Fingers crossed

Does anyone know a way to get rid of mildew, and when to do it?

Having just planted our front garden three weeks ago, we woke one morning to find scratch marks round the plants, thinking it may have been cats scratching the new top soil, I put cat powder round the plants, this smelt like garlic.  Three days later we woke to find two of the plants broken and half the garden raked onto the pavement.  Do you think this could be foxes and if so what do I do?
