Rosemummy, cut it back for now,,tickle in a little food,,water and it will flower again.  After its second flush dig it up and divide. 

A practical word about Montana on the ground......snails will love it.  Weeds will love it. ,your,plamts will hate it.

If the roots look intact Lizgoodbody I think slugs or snails too. If  weevils the plant would have little or no roots for past couple of weeks yet foliage looks healthy

Hello garden angel

There was a fantastic thread by a fantastic guy about some fantastic jokes.  

Slug pellets

I think,the effect is equally felt by slugs and snails.  

I read, somewhere, that less than 10% are actually killed by pellets.

Good luck Clarington.  Did you research the company for info about them?  Maybe you could see a reason there for wanting to join them?

Rosemummy, well we live and learn.

Violas?  I cut back in mid summer....they will reflower,quite quickly.  However, I often split them and pot up.  

The clematis and rose were meant for wildlife or wild garden.  No way would I do any of that or use any of those plants.  Surprised he didn't plant dandelions too. Not for me.

However, Beechgrove is an excellent programme with excellent presenters.   Enjoyable half hour

Hello Ryan.  Nice to hear from ??ou again 

Well. You have no choice but to out them outside now.  

A clean cut back is important and hopefully they will grow....there's still time for that.  I think your site is fine......full sun will be too much for them right now.  I would be inclined to cover those with no shoots with fleece.......helps ward off any stray slugs if nothing else.
