Thanks for your tips. No idea why I haven't had any notifications to this thread. I'll trim off the top and feed it with some worm tea and see what happens. Never had probes with earwigs before so I'll point the finger of blame on the slugs. 

Quite surprised this plant has survived three years in the ground. Thought last years rain would have killed it off like the other one.

Hi, after last year's bad summer I thought my dahlias 'my love' wouldn't survive. Every time they popped up a shoot, the slugs were there to ravish them . This year only one has survived but no flowers. It has grown well and is of normal hight but the top looks damaged (slugs again). Has it just run out of steam from last year and need to bulk up or has the initial slug attack eaten all buds?

Thanks! I didn't recognise it. I'm uses to the blue one bur thw coloue and the cone like buds fooled me. I thought the pink one was very rare but all the ones I've seen here is pink. Not a blue in sight.

i'm glad to also tell that she is still alive but the original honeysuckle is gone since many years. No one knows what happened to it. It just gone one year.

Finally after god how many years (6-7 I think) this plant which I pulled out of a stonewall at my mother summerhouse in Sweden has started to flower. No idea if it is a named variety but it starts out with purple buds and then as they open they gove rapidly to yellow to complete white. They also produce the most fantastic scent. Despite me only having about ten flowers you can smell it in the evening breeze. Hopefully they will flower from this year onwards!
