Dahlia failure

No problem with Dahlias this year, I bought the tubers late so only paid 50p for each tuber.

They are growing in my cut flower plot along with the veg, this picture was taken in August but they are still growing strong and picking flowers for the house.

Could you post a picture of it ? Ive looked up flamingo flower and it comes up as Anthirium, without knowing for sure if this is the right plant we cannot give you secure advice.

Help identifying tropical looking plant

It’s a cordeline ( Torbay palm )

it looks to be growing really close to your window, if it was mine I would be digging it out but we are all different  and you might like to keep it.

it can be tidied up by removing the brown strapy leaves at the bottom, down the main stem. if they are ready to come off a gentle tug downwards is all it should take.

this should be done every year as this creats the stem.

Anyone got any ideas.

Oh dear that poor tree,, it was never going to grow well in that small shallow container, it looks like it's dried out at some time and I don't think it will recover.

ID me!

My first thought was indoor begonia as well, there are lots of different types.

Buds but no flowers

From the colour of the plant it looks a bit hungery I would be feeding it with tomato feed.

Does anyone know what this shrub is

Salvia hot lips is very easy to propagate I would be doing this before I bought new plants, but If you are buying new plants I would wait until the spring as it's not always hardy and you could buy now and loose them through the winter.
