Thanks @verdun, if the situation doesn't improve then that's what I'll do.

You might have been over-watering, especially as the weather is still not very warm. While the temperatures are low let the compost dry out between waterings - lots of useful info on this site http://msucares.com/news/print/sgnews/sg11/sg110215.html

Good luck 

Thank you Dovefromabove, that would make sense as I may have been a bit over zealous with the watering can. Thanks for the link, will check it out now.

 This pic shows the patches appearing on some of the petals.

 Some of the petals wither away. They don't appear to have any bite marks however.

 Here you can see some of the flowers are wilting. Some are also paler in colour.

I bought this gorgeous purple Senetti from Homebase about a month ago. It didn't come with many instructions. Firstly I potted it and put it in my front garden where it quickly became battered by the wind. So I moved it to a sheltered area and all seemed to be well. But now a month on the flowers seem to be struggling. I keep it well watered and have been regularly feeding with a general npk. No signs of slug attack although I did notice a few ants on the flowers and some of the petals have dark spots on them.

I've been dead heading the unhealthy looking flowers but if I carry on its going to look like Morticia Addams' plants on the Addams family :/

Will post some pics.

Appreciate any advice you have guys.

Hey all, my sweet peas are coming along nicely. I had more seedlings thababy boo canes so I gave a few to the feller next door. But should I have one plant per cane? Would hate to grow too close together and have them come down with mildew.
