Yes, put it up a corner and ignore it. No water except what drops from the sky. Probably better in a pot if you have clay soil but very quick draining compost
Did you keep it moist for the sake of the bedding plants? This one grows on some of my poorest, driest soil. It doesn't look great. I wouldn't worry about brown flowers, there will be more next year. Are there any live leaves left at the bottom? they're more important
i think I've sent you a PM GD but let me know if I haven't. First try from here instead of going into 'My Messages'
I don't know annuals but I can't see anything Malva like there. I thought they all had the lobed leaves
good plan soulboy. I only take a notebook to the garden but transferring notes to computer sounds a plan.
they're not eggs, they're caterpillar droppings
cut the flowers stems off, they'll be back next year, you may even get some little one this year
are they that much damaged? It's hard to tell from the photo.
Butterflies lay eggs, they become caterpillars which eat and s...t, which is what that is.
The butterflies must have got inside your netting.
