I'm hand-watering all the clematis that are in bud at the moment - they're getting the equivalent of a bucket full of water each every other day - I once had a clematis absolutely smothered with buds which turned brown and failed to flower after a dry spring ... I don't want that to happen again.

Hi amandatowers 


Where are they?  It sounds as if they may be feeling cold.


Let the soil surface dry between waterings.  


It's not really a good idea to put small plants in large pots ............. how


small are the plants and how big are the pots?  Can you show us a photo please?

How many handfuls of ericaceous feed is a few?  I would have thought that one handful per container would be enough ... depending of course on the size of your hand ...........

Those look like sycamore seeds ....... don't panic ..... just mow your lawn regularly and they'll die.


 If you left them to grow you'd have a forest, but at that size they don't survive having their tops lopped off.   I promise you that's the case.  We have similar ash tree seeds all over our lawns every year.  All we do is mow the lawns. 


More of a nuisance are the ones that fall and germinate on the flower beds - I hoe those out before they get more than a few inches tall.
