Remove all the forgetmenots and let the light in. They will toughen up in the light.

What are these plants?

Most dahlias are perennial, they form tubers which will overwinter. Most bedding dahlias are grown from seed and are a fast growing type which will flower early and can thus be treated as annuals. As you have found, in a mild winter, they will survive to grow again.

Put it in the shade. It will have an underdeveloped root system and cannot draw up water fast enough in sunlight.

No floods here. The soil under the oak is so dry I cant get a fork in. I've put the soaker hose on so I can put bean sticks in.

Hugs for chicky too.

There are lots of annual bedding plants in the garden centres at the moment which will brighten it up a bit. Some of the larger ones like cosmos or cleome  will give some height.

ID please!
