What's happening to my Flox!?

Hi Nik, they do need a good amount of moisture to keep them happy. 

Mildew is a common problem with Phlox. You can spray for mildew but it won't take away the white that's already there. It doesn't kill the plant. I think I'd either cut it back or put up with it but try and prevent it next year. A good mulch and keep them hydrated

Ah, well I've only got one clone. 2 plants but the same donor.

Have I got room for another one?

Chocolate Vine climber Akebia Quinata

West Acre has a climate of its own and grows things that shouldn't survive in East Anglia. Also produces fruits from things that don't fruit in East Anglia.

In my experience akebia is loads of rapidly growing leafy stems and the odd flower. In all the years I've grown it I've never seen a pod. Not even a tiny one

 BUT

artjak says the RHS site says they need another clone to pollinate

How to beat this weed?

If they're foxgloves they'll pull up easily and be gone, though  more may germinate. 

It looks more like green alkanet to me. This has much deeper roots and it not removed easily but a dose of glyphosate will do it. There are plenty of growing leaves there now. Glyphosate works on strongly growing leaves. At this time of year it takes a long time to show effects but works well.

See how the snowdrops go. Drying out is not generally recommended. That's why they're sold 'in the green'.

 

Huge push thing, what is is please

I wonder about some sort of poplar but there will be plants in Seattle of which a Fenlander knows nothing.

does rootgrow go off?

It won't do any harm but if it were me I'd just scatter it around the garden and buy some new for planting things.
