They seem so eager to make others be peaceable that they're willing to wage war to do it

Powdery Mildew

I'm wondering whether the clematis and the cosmos were not watered consistently at the Garden Centre before you bought them - this has been the case with some plants that I've bought n the past - the results of the stress don't show until some weeks later 

New raised beds, clumpy soil, advice please?

Get some bags of well rotted farmyard manure from the GC and dig that in - the worms will do the rest 

Dare I say.

But they won't listen to anyone - each of them is right, the other is wrong and no one understands them and "It's not fair!!!" and half of the west is riddled with guilt and the rest wants the oil.

BEDDING PLANTS

I think Punkdoc may have put his finger on it.  Most annual bedding plants like full sunshine all day.

Fuchsias and trailing begonias are happy with some shade, but they still need quite bright light.

Work out how many hours of direct sunlight your pots and baskets get, and then when you buy your plants look at the labels and talk to the nurseryman or ask at the garden centre. 

Dare I say.

I've a feeling that even my patience might be exhausted in the Middle East David - I'd probably end up bashing their heads together and telling them to go and play nicely or there'd be no supper ................. ever!!!

I suppose I should expand on my posts at the beginning of the thread where I talked about my froggy avatar and how I planned to change it for a pigeon or dove from the garden.  I gave up waiting for them to stand still and pose nicely, and I've 'borrowed' Picasso's etching of a white dove - as an artist it seems appropriate
