Give it lots and lots of water. Keep the roots cool and moist (not soggy). Try to shade the container

I'm not sure from the pic but it might be a Schefflera.

I also think it sounds like a scale insect infestation. Check Guybrush's link for advice on how to treat the problem.

Good morning all 

Terrible fire ... Hope everyone got out, but the news report doesn't sound great 

About half an hour I watched a muntjac doe walk down the rise and across towards the SSSI woodland across the way.  I've heard them in the area, but not seen them this close to the house before.

Very likely Watery ... But if people follow the advice above the ladybird larvae won't be there to munch on the aphids when they appear on the beans, will they?

its really not a good idea to go round killing things indiscriminately, especially when you have no idea what they are. 

Can anyone identify this please.

If your pic won't upload try reducing the size. It usually works. 

Privacy ideas

I would think about creating one or two secluded areas with pergolas, trellis and seating, and then if you want to break up other areas with beds of shrubs tall perennials and grasses at a later date then you can. 

Looking forward to seeing your photos.

Nope, not mustard ... mustard is a brassica and those aren't brassica leaves ... neither are the flowers right for a brassica.

I can tell you what it isn't, but not what it is
