Ugh? Are they trailing million bells?

Million bells (calibrachoa) have small leaves and start to flower when quite young.  Are the leaves and stems hairy? What size is the plant?

My silver  leaf ones are expanding in dry shade. The golden one disappeared over winter.

Independence Day?

It's a democracy. Those who didn't vote can't complain.

Slightly more than half of those who voted voted out, the rest in. The reasons why are likely to have been shaped by individual circumstances and experiences, and that should be respected. I don't see why this should degenerate into a slagging off contest. We lost some valuable members of the forum last time, they are missed.

Time to respect others opinions and move on.

Ist one looks like apple tree leaves. Has it got a climber coming through it.?

Can you trace it back to the base and see. ?

If its an apple, your neighbours will not be happy f you chop it back. Ask the neighbours if it is bothering  you.

They respond to regular pruning, lightly trim it and feed it, and new shoots should grow.

Increase the humidity, water the gravel as well as the plants.

Is it too late?

Red onion bulbs wont wait, get them in now.

Mushrooms grow best in damp humid weather, now sounds ideal. If we have a heatwave, Autumn is the usual time.
