I have heavy clay soil so I grow them in pots and those sown this year will be flowering well next year and also as they are in pots I can put them in the shed in winter.

in the ground they need to be or they will go lanky and not near walls as they soak up all the water they can and that's not good for a wall! they drink  a lot and at first you will have to protect from slugs.

I have to pick the duck weed  out by hand  or with  a net ,the thing is to keep some shade over the pond and I run water from the water  butt so fresh water gets in and grow irises in  a pot to filter the water.

hydrangea

One thing is that it may need re potting (they need this every so often) and not so much chicken manure ,a good compost and a bigger pot and water well, feed mainly when in flower with a comfrey feed or chopped leaves of comfrey .If you want it to be blue and you have dandylions in your garden dig these up and make into solution and 50 mls to litre of water to feed plant will hopefully turn the leaves blue.
