That's nice, I love those blue flowers. Must get some more.

I look the other way usually Fairy

One or two plants I've stopped growing because of the mildew problem, eg the blue polemoniums.

All crossed Fairy

Some in there are fairly easy but some I've failed with before; the variegated Rhamnus which I've tried at all times of year and never succeeded with and Bupleurum fruticosum that used to seed about but now I want to start another one I don't get seedlings.

I would cut them back rather than spray.

Sprays may or may not affect the mildew but once discoloured the plants stay discoloured.

They don't want to get too hot do they. If summer comes back and the temperature gets too high in there I'll move the whole assembly to a shady place outside

PS. But if they did, the ones with berries would be the females

Laurels have both male and female parts in the flowers as far as I know.

They don't come in male and female like hollies do.

Cuttings, they have lids on the propagators but no heat, and some shade (a sheet) to stop them getting fried. 

Is there anything else I need to do?

I'd nip out the ends of all the stems, not much, just a couple of leaf's worth. It will encourage it to bush out. I don't think it's too late in the season to do that. Don't be tempted to just let it go, it could end up a bit 'see through'
