They're after the nectar bookertoo a sweet treat at this time of year. My solution would be an air rifle but I know that won't go down well with some people.

Xyz, add plenty of organic matter and some iron sulfate to the soil plus grit. That should do the job initially. It may need additional ammonia based fertiliser over time if it starts to yellow.

You're better off raising them off the slabs. They'll last longer if raised off the slabs on awood frame. Direct contact with the slabs would mean early rotting whereas raised the frame would go first.

Alan the supplier is telling porky pies. That's bacterial shothole disease with a touch of powdery mildew thrown in. Demand replacements or a refund. The shothole is more difficult to cure than the powdery mildew even so you've paid good money for poor quality plants.

I'd carry out a pH test on the soil Flosmos. There may be conditions within the soil that are seriously affecting the pH making it very alkaline. It's unusual but surprisingly common in gardens.

Difficult one the Clarence. Have you tried contacting the RHS? They may be aware of, or interested in your problem. Worth a try.
