Poppy seed

This year I'm experimenting, I am cutting off the first seed heads to see if any new buds appear.  I will leave some heads on later to ensure that I get some seed.

Poorly white grape vine

My 19+ year old vine appears to be dying.  It started growing as usual in the spring but now all the leaves are pale and drooping.  I can't believe that given the weather we are having that it suffering from a shortage of water and the plant has been fed as usual.  Does anyone know what the problem might be.

If it is not back until July 20 then we will not be getting any coverage of the Hampton Court show which is next week.  Seems unusual.

why is my pond brown and not clear

From my experience you will never have truly clear water if you have Koi, they distrub the bottom all the time and your pumps them distribute the particles throughout.  One positive is that your brown water hides your fish from passing herons.

Any ideas what has happened to my foxglove?

It's called fasciation and is caused by damage to the growing tip.  It doesn't harm the plant

could it be Butterbur, (Petasites), it spreads very easily and flowers in spring when very few if any leaves are evident.
