no doubt about it. If you were sold that as bedding plant, complain. Though I'd rather have that than a bedding plant

We sure need a pic. Bedding plants are supposed to flower. Or so I'm told, I don't grow them

Plant/tree ID please

How big is your garden and how interested are you in wildlife and native plants?

I wouldn't be without hawthorn

What plant is this?

Hi Colin,

It's a honeysuckle and it's probably run out of food. You need a much bigger pot than that to keep a honeysuckle happy. The ground would be better and something else in the pot

Jingle Bells is a cirrhosa cultivar.

In my experience they go brown if they get too cold, and if they get too hot ,and if they get too dry. Always bounced back so far. Last time it got the haircut to end all haircuts. All nice and green again this year. Unfortunately all these dyings back mean I see very few flowers. The big haircut was meant to see it off but no.

Shrubs can't take that in summer unless you're very careful in deed. Enough water, but too much is as bad as not enough. Don't feed any more, a plant needs to be growing to use food.

Euphorbia lathyris

its roots won't ever get established. It's a biennial. Germinates in year one, flowers, seeds and dies in year two

looks like hawthorn to me as well

Can i chop/move a large cotinus??

you can cut them right back to base, in spring, to start again. Some people do that every year for the foliage. 

Help with Plant ID's, please.

Could do with a better look at the leaves but Malva moschata, Musk Mallow is likely
