I had all that last year Berghill, they all seem OK this year so far. Even weeds looked chlorotic.
I didn't find a cause. I think we may have had a discussion on the forum but to no conclusion
I don't think the poisons jumps out at you. Half the garden is poisonous.
Bellis perennis, it grows in your lawn (mine anyway) this is a cultivated version which will eventually seed back to what grows in the lawn
Good question, my cutting is usually part of the early spring work because then I can see if there are any dead branches after winter. That doesn't mean it's the best way. I make it up as I go along and most things survive
I think the first is a veronica of some sort.
The 4th is Houttuynia cordata 'Chamaeleon'
The last I think is a saxifrage, maybe the one with the white flowers as well, I don't think the leaves should be buried like that.
I don't think the lack of yellow would worry the bees.
I take out old and ill-placed stems, right ot the base, when they're dormant. And occasionally in summer when they get so heavy they threaten to break or collapse on something else. They keep throwing up more stems so I assume that's OK
If I remember correctly Splish splash is a fancy version of Geranium pratense, one of our native wildflowers. It won't need any form of coddling and over-feeding anything can give you leaves at the expense of flowers. Ypu need to talk to about that compost heap and what happens to plants that don't please you
If you've had it for 5 years without flowers I'd dump it and get something that flowers.
I'm being hard this year, they perform or they're out
They are subject to fire blight. Have a look at some images on the web and see if they resemble yours
