Help....

No reason why not  Make sure you use  John Innes rather than multipurpose compost as they need free draining soil. Plant so the rhizome is still visible on the top of the soil. 

corms, tubers or what?

Dahlia erythronium or canna? 

unidentified flower

Bump! Sorry Tracey I haven't tried to post one yet but someone should be able to help you. 

Can someone help identify what this "bee" / bug this is?

I have spent ages trawling through sites too. Learnt loads whilst doing it but found nothing that looked anything like it so I too am waiting with bated breath for the verdict

Subtropical plant ideas needed please

Hedichium (ginger lily), Musa Basjoo (hardy banana),  Rodgersia aesculifolia, Aruncus, Zantedeschia aethiopica "Crowborough", Perennial Hibiscus (rose mallow) Eupatorium and last but not least Crinum x powellii. All have exotic looking flowers or big leaves or grow very tall. Most of them I grew in my garden as that was the kind of look I was after  

What type of mushroom / fungus is this ?

Hi  hard to tell at this stage as is still immature but don't think its a poisonous one. Would you be prepared to wait and see if the head flattens out and how much, then repost? Pretty sure it is one of two very edible ones but won't know for sure til mature.

Might also be worth moving it outside for the summer. Give it a bit of fresh air...and the flies will fly away  Check under the leaves re the sticky stuff. May be aphids. Again moving it outside would let the predators get rid of them for you.

WHY DOESN'T MY HONEYSUCKLE FLOWER?

They are pretty similiar to clematis in the conditions they like. A rich fertile soil well mulched and not too dry, as Verdun said, with their feet in the shade and their heads in the sun. Add blood fish and bone in spring to encourage flowers.

corms, tubers or what?

No idea but that two pronged bit lower left looks suspiciously like a toe complete with nail! 

A few more "what are these" photos

4 looks like that horrible suckering everywhere spirea and I think the tree paeonia is lutea. The flowers are not as showy as the others but the leaves are much prettier. 1 looks like fern to me too. Nice to see you btw thecatsmother
