I would have been giving it at least a bucket full of water at least three times a week since early March.

We're fine Hosta, thanks ... although OH fell off his bike yesterday and skidded down the road on his left hip and elbow ... a grazed elbow and bruised hip are the only lasting effects other than him feeling a bit embarrassed. Arnica has been applied but don't think it heals bruised egos A chap came out of a house to check that he was ok. OH was trying to carry a couple of boxes home under his arm

To answer the question ... this site may be of help
Has it been regularly and copiously watered? The spring and early summer were very dry.
Give the container a good wash and put fresh compost in and it'll be fine
I think you've given him the best chance possible ... Certainly better than had you not taken him 'under your wing'
Now he has as good a chance of survival as the rest of the bluetits fledglings out there ... You can't do better than that ... Well done
Id ask the chap who cuts the hedge to pull out and cut whatever ivy needs removing each time before he cuts the hedge. It won't get rid of it all but will keep it under control if it's done twice a year, and even if he charges you an extra tenner it's the most practical solution rather than anything more radical in my opinion.
Good morning all It's a glorious morning
I used to work for Social Services ... I fed the birds outside my office window ... one summer we had quite a large 'hemp' plant growing in Social Services gardens
Sounds a lovely solution. When you plant the clematis, plant it a good 6 inches deeper than it was in the pot
