One thing, Gracie - many hardy annuals don't like being moved, but should be sown in situ. Poppies are a good example.
Bamboos are usually covered to stop them poking you in the eye. You'll find the same covers on, e.g., clematis sticks.
Have a look here - it might be wise to get rid of other plants which act as hosts.
I've had a flower, too.
It'll be interesting to see what happens next year.
Yes, it's perfectly safe. Lilac roots do spread, but they shouldn't do any harm.
Yes, I agree with Geoff - there's no such thing as geranium blight, they're just too wet.
Cut down the watering so that your plants are almost bone dry before watering again, and then only give a little water.
Your best bet is probably to tear the shoots off the root, not cut them. If you cut them, you leave a lot of nascent growth points behind and they will simply grow again.
You could try February Gold. Although this starts flowering in February, it lasts for a long time and should still be around in March.
You will find that they are the same plants as available in garden centres now for indoor cultivation. They like cool conditions, but will die in cold and wet.
I agree with Muddy Fork - you can get on top of it, but you have to accept that it won't be instant and, if there is a large amount, you need to use weedkiller.
