They are ahead of their usual timetable fidget but it doesn't look like any frost damage I've seen before.

It's not as dry as it has been some years Dave, though we've had nothing like the rain some areas have had. The ponds have filled up, that's ground water and they don't fill every winter.

Does that go away when the plant goes dormant Bob?

These plants have all been affected at the same time, this is a big garden and nothing is closer than 50 yards from either on the others.

I hope so Hosta, but some bits are sort of crispy to touch. 

It's only been noticeable in the last few days.

What's going on here? Both my Mollys have a problem as do 2 of the second year seedlings of fidgets Blushed Molly. One of the victims must be 15 or 20 years old the other 5 or 6. It looks like a mould but may not be. I only have one other herbaceous paeony, peregrina, and that is unaffected.


 these have never been other than healthy before

I agree with Fairy, it will be hard to establish a shrub of that size. a smaller one will overtake it in a couple of years

Try everything, something will work. You can always take more cuttings when the growth is a bit less soft

Might be worth trying layering on the roof if you can get the pot secure.

I'd go with the cuttings, you never know when your neighbour might decide to hard prune the honeysuckle

Good re the foetida Philippa, the others will flower next year

I let them seed and keep young plants moving on, they tend to look a bit manky after a few years so I chuck them.
