It's not hardy is it? won't it die in winter?

i love hollyhocks but the rust is so bad here I've had to abandon them. I'll just admire them in other gardens

no, it's not a scare-monger story, very interesting, what you'd expect from Kew

it has been grown in gardens in the UK for years without harm. It's a tree in its native land I think but pbff is right on 2 counts, tender and not a bog plant

I'd be surprised if it's a rogersia, all those I've seen have the leaflets divided rather than whole like that but one point in favour is that it was given to you as a bog plant

Hi GD, yes, perennial but not one for a pond edge unless it's a dry one, more a rockery/gravel garden plant

It's Ricinus communis, aka Castor Oil plant

can you get a bit closer so we can see the shape of the flowers and leaves. It's just a blur when enlarged

dead branches can be cut off anything, I would make a clean cut,back to healthy wood, rather than breaking off. Don't leave stumps.

I missed the Hosta 

Some are more susceptible to slug damage that others. I don't know how what that one is.

Everything s happier in the ground than in a container. You haven't got anything there that needs anything particular re soil.

I'd cut the straggly bits of the hebe, put it in a bigger pot, loosen up the roots an bit and add some new compost round it. Maybe plant it out in autumn or spring.

The one that neither Punkdoc nor I could name is a weed, you have a spare pot.

All would benefit from separating of different plants and repotting but I wouldn't do it while it's hot. Any of them can be planted out from autumn.
