I'd need a photo Lin.
They might be aquilegias but they're a bit small and distant
They're all a little on the sharp side gran. I've never seen this one
and it seeds itself very nicely. I'd do some cuttings and grab a few berries and throw them on the garden as soon as they're ripe. Or you could start them in pots, sow when ripe and leave outside.
That's nice, I love those blue flowers. Must get some more.
I look the other way usually Fairy
One or two plants I've stopped growing because of the mildew problem, eg the blue polemoniums.
All crossed Fairy
Some in there are fairly easy but some I've failed with before; the variegated Rhamnus which I've tried at all times of year and never succeeded with and Bupleurum fruticosum that used to seed about but now I want to start another one I don't get seedlings.
I would cut them back rather than spray.
Sprays may or may not affect the mildew but once discoloured the plants stay discoloured.
They don't want to get too hot do they. If summer comes back and the temperature gets too high in there I'll move the whole assembly to a shady place outside
