What's the star in your garden right now

I'm making notes of all of the plants and flowers you have all mentioned to get them for next year, thanks

Thanks for the really good advice everyone, I will add compost and see how they do next year.  I haven't usually bothered with them too much until now so maybe they do need some TLC, I would be sad to lose them as they usually brighten up the garden a lot when other things are dying back.

Hi thanks for that, what does a vine weevil look like.  I don't think it could be that as there are leaves underneath all of the messy ones that look quite fresh. Its just that there have been hardly any flowers and brown messy looking leaves.  I did cut it right down early on and the new leaves after that looked great, so it is most probably the lack of water which has been in short supply here.  Do I mulch now and what with.  Also could the plants be old and maybe need splitting up or whatever they have been in quite a few years.

Hi, does anyone know why my established Japanese anemone has hardly flowered this year and what flowers I had have already died off.  The leaves are looking shrivelled despite watering from a water butt although new growth is underneath, but the whole plant looks a mess.

Thanks will try that, should have done that before but the plant doesn't look too healthy overall so I have been wondering, as well as the white marks,  if its in the wrong place or watering it too much too little!!  Thanks for the advice.

I thought of that, wondered if it could have been paint splashes but it rubs off and is dry and powdery.  The trellis was painted years ago and the clematis went in this year, anyway will check this out, thanks.

Hi my clematis, which has yet to flower, has got white marks on the leaves.  Has anyone got any ideas as to what it could be, also what to do about it?

Too much rain, too little rain, what to do.  Thanks for great advice.

I'm going to cut the echinacea's right down today, noticed that the flowers which were lovely have now gone black also.  Will the black spot stay with the plant and will I need to spray next year before it starts growing properly and if so what with.  I love the plant, the flowers just went on and on and then in their prime just died.  I also  have a lot of trouble with black spot on roses (sussex uk)

Thank you, I will do that.  Yes they are going over now but I was wondering if the black spot would stay with the plant and ruin it for next year.
