Its euphorbia lathyrus or caper spurge. It's regarded as a weed.

Pruning Fuchsias

If you prune now it's fine. S1lly1. They're in full growth mode doing them now will do harm whatsoever. They'll produce loads of new growth and a feed after pruning will see them romp away. There are plenty of plants which require specific pruning times and fuchsias ISNT one of them. It could be December or later before we see a frost so they grow until temperatures drop and that's plenty of time.

Hydrangea problems

That looks like Annabelle to me Meg. They can be a bit lax in habit. If you're on clay it should be perfectly happy. It's only been in a few months so it's establishing right now so don't expect too much from it this year. It looks pretty healthy. A bit of leaf loss and the odd problem is common. I do understand your loss been in that position myself many years ago now, but have 3 large tall boys now all much taller than me. So life will get better and so will your hydrangea.

Pot on gradually or straight into big pot?

That's not much of a move Craigh. They'll be quite happy.

Problem roses

Becca the best remedy for any infection is really good feeding. Mulching with well rotted manure, rose feeds, seaweed feeds or comfrey feeds. Strong roses are more able to resist infection. By the way I think that's both rust and blackspot.

You won't find one Lou. How about planting a few different varieties all the same colour.

I don't think much will be happy in 9 inches of soil other than bedding plants.

Pruning roses help

Ripaul, ramblers and climbers are pruned at different times of the year and in different ways so unless without a couple of pictures it's difficult to advise you correctly .
