The only reason I can think of is the weather we've had. It has upset a lot of plants this year. There have been quite a few threads about different plants/trees not fruiting this year - such a shame.Next year ....hopefully!

You can move them now or in the spring. If you move them now they will have a good chance to settle in while the soil is still warm. Youu can cut them back a bit now and then hard back in the spring.

wooden planters

I agree with all of above. I would also put some broken up pieces of polystrene in the base to help with drainage( on top of the liner) and keep down the weight - be sure where you want to put these barrels as they are going to be heavy and difficult to move later. What are you thinking of putting in these planters - seasonal/permanent planting as that might influence the type of compost you use.

Am I posting too much?

Overpostitis - never heard of it! If you've got the time, inclination, knowledge, interest, do it - it's up to everyone else if they read it!!

Jean, is that a label attached to your 'jasmine' ? If so, what does it say?Like Lottie I'm not convinced it is jasmine either.

What's the weather like in your area?
