Could be a mallow of some sort.

Dove, I had the first lot of runner beans rot. I resowed a different type and complained to the seed people who replaced the seed.  The runners have now surpassed the French beans up the poles. I would try pushing some seeds in the ground. It's going to be hot next week, that should get them going. I bet Verdun is already picking his. Where is Panda and Kef , as well?

I'm sure you have already done it, but change all your passwords that he may know.

Photocopy any documents that may come in useful (bank statements )and either email them to a safe (ie one he doesn't know about) email address or lodge them with a friend.

They prefer full sun. I would put them in clumps about a foot (30cm in new money) apart.

If you don't want him to read your posts, use a new name. PM a few that you know to let them know who you are. Above all,  stay safe. Verbal abuse and controlling behaviour can be as bad as physical  abuse. You can always make a new garden . Will you stay in France or return to England?

The curling of the leaves looks more like hormone weedkiller damage. Have you mulched around your garden with bought in manure? Some is contaminated by aminopyralid, or compost using grass clippings treated with clopyralid.

I did that with the wheeliebins this week. Two full to   put out, and three compost bagfuls to go in them after emptying. The weeds are loving all this wet. I compost as much as I can, but perennial weed roots and anything seeding goes in the green waste bin.

My dahlias have buds but no flowers yet.
