I feed after flowering with ericaeous food - marked as camellia/rhododendron feed. I think the most important thing to do for a camellia is to make sure it doesn't go short of water in late summer/early autumn when it is making its flower buds for the following year.

Strange nandina?

I agree with wind damage particularly when looking at the ends of the leaves. Mine haven't started producing new foliage yet but should soon. I would give it a feed and some tlc to help it recover and I'm sure it will reward you.

Can you please help me identify this plant, x2 photos attached, thank you

Sorry artjak, it's definitely fennel. Seed heads on top photo and new foliage growing at base of plant in the second photo confirm it.

pergola - wisteria or clematis?

I have a thornless rose - Mortimer Sackler ( terrible name, lovely rose) and a clematis - The President on my arch. The rose is no bother I just tie it in and prune lightly in early spring - no thorns. there are quite a few available. The clematis also gets cut down in early spring and is covered with blooms all summer.

Thanks. I would have missed it too. Had to reach for the subtitiles button when the sound disappeared half way through - very annoying! Great to have Monty and Nigel back.
