Morning goddy 

can you post a picture?  If not, which plants are affected?  Are they young plants as opposed to established shrubs etc?

since you garden organically I assume you haven't been using weedkillers...even on a lawn cos spray can drift.

The weather has been cold, frosty, in most plsces and possibly this is the cause

Morning keen, when foliage is yellow then you can cut it off.

always same problem...we love daffs, alliums etc but hate the associated tatty foliage after.  Always a temptation to tidy up but for best flowers next year have tolerance

suddenly flower spikes on my lupins.  Where did they come from?  (Don't answer I know ).  By next week they will be open 

just illustrates how quickly things change in the garden....month back it felt like a cold spring now it feels like summer.

Morning keen.

I never have problems moving eunymous...emerald n gold esp. 

The other,,sounds like aureus, may sulk a bit but I would cut it back to help it maintain moisture.  

Not the best time to move it ....a few weeks back would,have been better plus the hotter, drier weather wont help

Bit of heat and Sun making plants wilt!

Yes CraighB.  I wonder if the compost around the root system has dried out........I have found the composts dry out very quickly this year
