Yes definitely a mahonia.

I've just moved mine from a large pot into a bed and it seems to be coping ok.  I managed to move it intact with all roots compost etc and I'm making sure to keep it watered.  There are no side effects so far, for me.

Thanks Verdun - I never knew you could do that!  I've cut back and watered and will give them a tomato feed this evening.  Thanks again to everybody for your help - it just proves that you learn something new every day!!!

Ok I'll do that - thanks for the info.  I suppose it's too much to hope that they'd flower again this year?

Didn't overwater and it's not caused by pests.  You mention running out of steam and I think maybe that's what it is.  They seemed to become much taller over the space of a week and now can't keep themselves upright. 

How would I cut them back?  Just take the flowers off?  In the past with pansies when they went past their best I just got rid of them so I've never done this before.........

Thanks for your help.

In spite of keeping them watered, my petunias and pansies have gone from being a glorious riot of healthy colour to growing too tall and hanging over the sides of the pot looking half-dead.

Is there any way to resore them?  Would putting them in the shade help?  Will they flower again?  I'm very disappointed because they were beautiful.

Can anyone tell me what this is?

It'll need sun to stop the white leaves turning back to green.  Mine has been planted about 2 weeks now and it's just starting to take off.  It'll be a beauty when it gets a bit bigger. 

Can anyone tell me what this is?

Euonymous Harlequin - I bought one just a few weeks ago.

My very old neighbour has had them in her garden for years.  A couple of times she gave me baby plants, but they didn't survive.

The ones I got last year must have come from seeds blown over from her garden - and I assume the same thing has happened this year.

Absolutely nothing to do with me!

After 25 years of living in our house, suddenly last year for the first time two hollyhocks appeared.

This year I have about six - and they're about 3 feet high already and growing like mad.  Just wish they didn't like to seed themselves at the front of the borders!
