Mould on climbing roses

Hi Anne. Any chance you can upload a picture so we can see the mould?

Plant ID please

Hi Kerri.  Going off the fading flowers and the developing seed head it looks to me like it may be the yellow paeony called Paeonia mlokosewitschii or Molly the Witch to help pronounciation. If it is then you are very very lucky. Its a beautiful plant and quite hard to get hold of where I am. If you decide it has to be moved then do it in the autumn trying hard not to damage the roots too much (they go very deep!). Do not plant it too deeply in its new home and give it some general fertiliser. It can take a year to settle in.

Canna lily slow to shoot

Hi there. I would keep it in the pot as you suggested. Give it a chance as the slugs might have another go at it if you were to plant it out again.

Hi. It could probably do with dividing to rejuvenate it. They are amazingly tough to dig up - at least mine were - but I do like them.

Hi Janet. I think its all up to personal taste and available space. I've no idea how long a wooden bed would last. My raised beds are black plastic of some description.

I agree with Chrissie the gardener and green fingered finch too.

Is something sleeping in my geraniums?

I agree with GFF. The plants look good. After they flower shear them off to ground level and you'll get another flush of flowers.
