Charley, glad you found the cause. Hope you are better soon.

Butterfly, the worst plant for causing photosensitivities are euphorbias. They include many weeds. If you cut or handle any euphorbias or spurges, always wear gloves.

Fishy, the aquilegias are labelled as to the plants they came off. However, with the aid of a few bees, they are very promiscuous, and you never know what might turn up. Sometimes they come true, others you get some weird variation. Good luck.

I have a montana and a jasmine and a rosa filipes, all covering a hawthorn. They are all very vigorous and seem to cope with each other. They have minimal pruning. I just hack off any bits that get in the way.

My friend in Australia has boxes that moved from Pittsburgh in America, to Nottingham, to Perth,Australia, and then twice within western Australia. Its only the gardens that get left behind when she moves.

Beware of homes where all the residents sit around in a stupefied state. Some homes "manage" residents by getting the doctor to prescribe tranquillisers and sleeping tablets.  That way the night staff have little to do. Trouble is,there is an increased risk of falls in any elderly on sleeping tablets. If ,on an unannounced visit, the residents are actively socialising with each other, and doing various  hobbies,then you have  probably found a good place.

Next door had to chain link fence their side of the beech hedge. This kept in dalmatian and great danes, but for a jack russell it had to be buried six inches and stapled to a log.

Give it a feed, a water, and a mulch of compost or bark, but not touching the crown, or growing point.
