Salvia patens oxford blue

Posted: 23/07/2017 at 11:41

I always think these, and plants like the Mirabilis, are quicker to flower from seed thanfrom over-wintering roots. I left S. patens in the garden last year, it's growing but nowhere near flowering. It's usually more advanced that this at the end of July

That looks very sad. I'd tip it out of that pot and see if it's pot bound. It looks like the pot it came in and it must have grown, or tried to grow, in that time. Then pot up as Obelixx suggests.

What exactly did you mean by MPC with good drainage? Did you add grit to the MPC or put some at the bottom?

I would rate these people as reputable. Reading what they say it may be your plant is doing as expected but this is not one that I grow so can't be sure

I'd start by finding out the proper names of your plants. 

Invasive vine-like plant

it will have been planted but taken over if not controlled. You won't kill it by pulling it off, it will just come back. So you can get it off the shrubs so you can see them

What is this plant please?

I think tree suckers, cherry maybe?

Saplings in the lawn

suckers, far worse than saplings.

The more roots you can pull out the better. Looks like Rhus typhina? a real pain for this, never had to deal with it, only cherries which do the same. Without the tree the cherries give up eventually if mowed off regularly. They can't live forever if all the leaves are removed
