The gardens that we visited on Monday at Bressingham were full of aconitum - beautiful - the gardens there are open to the public and also have miniature railways, fairground rides and other attractions for children.

Poor Soil

I would get a bag or two of 'soil conditioner' and mulch around the plants and 'tickle' it in with a hoe - that should help improve the soil.

Hmmm, must be better than I thought LOL

Are you letting the compost dry out between waterings?  Those plants shouldn't need watering until the soil an inch below the surface is really dry.

Also none of those need feeding very much.  When they were put in those containers the compost should have contained enough feed to last for at least six weeks.  Then  perhaps a dose of general seaweed based fertiliser in the summer would have been all I'd have given them until next spring. 

I think that a combination of over-watering and over feeding has resulted in an imbalance of nutrients in those pots.
