Million Bells from last year

Thanks Dove, what do I do with the cuttings, should I put them into water or hormone powder and pot them up?

I have a couple of million bells plants that have managed to survive in pots from last year but they are looking very 'leggy,' altough they do have green healthy new growth at the ends. Do I leave them alone, or should I take cuttings?

I too have this sooty mould on my Pieris, I did manage to get some of it off with a damp sponge but my plants are so big I couldn't possibly wipe down all the leaves. Verdon, may I ask what you mean by a systemic spray in a few weeks time?

Thanks for replies, it is potted in eracaceus soil. Sorry I am still not clear on this , am I right in thinking you only feed once a year then?, when link refers to 'no need to feed until next season' ?

This is the first time I have owned a Camelia and mine has just started flowering, could someone please advise me how best to care for it? for instance, should I be feeding it whilst it is in flower? It is in a container.

I have been fighting a battle with Speedwell in my lawn and borders for years and feel I have just got on top of it, however now I am taking on the fight against the dreaded Hairy Bittercress.

Thanks David, your 'Garnet' is beautiful and certainly seems very happy in its location. Do you give it any special feed?

David K, thankyou so much for the lovely photos, I must say your Acers look very impressive. May I ask what varieties/how old they are and if you have them in any particular aspect? I only ask because one seems quite happy in an open site whereas the other is more protected in a cornered site. If I have half the success of yours I will be very happy. 

When and what to feed?

Apologies, but I always get totally bamboozled by all the different plant foods available and when to use them. As I understand it there are some that stimulate healthy foliage and some that stimulate flowering.There are also times when people advise that you should give something a feed when it has been moved or been cut back. I often scatter c.m pellets around the garden during spring, but now I have been led to believe that this might be helping produce good foliage but maybe deferring flowering!! I am soooo confused. You help would be very much appreciated on this matter.
