It looks like a variegated erysimum but I couldn't say which one

Escallonia 'Apple Blossom' - few flowers

I think it would be worth trying a good hard prune and feed before you decide it's had its day Calendula.

A few more clues please Melanie. I've no idea of the size or the shape of the plant. Is it a shrub? Is it evergreen?

I'm sure it will flower, it's what plants do.

The leaves would help. so many flowers look much the same in isolation

It's not exotic or anything, but I've always wanted Aster x frikartii monch but never had a sunny spot for it.  Now I've got the west facing border in the front garden I'm going to get one ................ what is more I'm going to drive down to Woottens of Wenhaston today and get it 

 

and what else will you come back with Dove

Suggestions please

You're getting a bit repetitive Slappy

If you get one of the non-flowering camomiles it will be low growing and yes it will release a scent

Choosing Grass Seed

Hi GD

I'd give it a good rake and scrape in September and sow the bald bits and the grassy bits. Grass does vary in colour and it will blend in better like that

Why does my garden look raggedy?

and autumn and winter

Just beginning now I have Inula hookeri, hardy fuchsias are looking good and Verbena bonariensis. Geranium 'Rozanne' goes on for weeks and youcan alter the flowering of buddleias by when you prune them.

Crocosmias to come, all mine are quite late and some asters but not those mildewed Michaelmas daisies. Some of the roses will have showy hips later and it won't be long before Cyclamen hederifolium wakes up, they go on for months

Roses

I'm not much of a rose grower but 2 things spring to mind.

1, too much food causing leaf growth at the expense of flowers

2. pruning off the stems that would have had the flowers
