some sort of mesh they don't like being transplanted and are not as tough as there sister plant bindweed.
you may have pruned to hard or their natural span of life has come to an end ,about 5 years in my garden and I always take stick cuttings.
put them out into a cold frame until they are ready and frosts are no threat.
no,at least I have never done so and bloom o.k.
yep,slugs really do ,and so do snails
I don't know but it looks like lace wings have attacked it or some sort mould.
that is very good , hope others will copy your good work,
best to wait until frost danger is over and that they have rooted well.
garlic is a good one ,made by putting a clove into a bottle of water and leave for a day before use. It helps but you need other protection as well or soapy water is another,its on going battle.
they like a lot of sun and water plus manure and don't pull the stalks to soon. you could force them by covering with a pot (big).
