Re-potted rose wilting

It won't be pleased, you'll need to cut back some top to balance up the root loss. I'd cut pretty hard at this time of year, the top will be losing moisture and the roots not taking it up

I think the 'biennial' wallfowers are perennial in truth but they don't look great after a couple of years.

Like that?

Just galls, no need to get rid. You will have a much more interesting and lively garden if you don't try and get rid of all forms of life.

Mulch - good for birds?

They're too busy with the moss on our flat porch roof to bother with mulch right now. We wade through lumps of it outside the back door every morning

We never see them at it so it might be the tits

The glass bowl

I had a couple of rescue goldfish that I put in the pond at my last garden. They spent several weeks swimming round in a small circle in the corner where they were released before they managed to move on

I say it whenever the opportunity arises Jo. and sometimes when it doesn't

A couple of weeks ago I walked around my garden with a friend. She remarked on the number of butterflies, several first sighting for her this year. I wondered why none in her garden. When we got to a shrub with aphids on it she told me what to spray it with. That gave me the answer.

The aphids have since been eaten/died/moved on. Shrub looks fine
