Picked ours last week, ripe too. As suggested, purée and freeze for winter use or if unbruised by the fall, core, fill with dried fruit and syrup and bake in the oven. Then freeze for winter use.

They needs food. They needs sun. They needs planting with the top of the 'bulb' no more than an inch below the soil level. So, yes move them to a better position.

The leaves on P. obovata are more rounded than the ones on this to my mind.

Pity you don't live near me, you could have plants of various forms of G. rivale for the asking.

If you keep it dead headed then they are not root invasive like some things. They will seed around and yes they are promiscuous, so there are lots of new named things around. Many of them not much different from each other.

Geum rivale is Water avens.

There are various forms of it, G.r. snowflake is obviously white and G.r. Leonard's Var. is a double red. G.r. Lemon Drop is a nice pale yellow. Dead easy in damp soil. Need to assiduously dead head or the can seed around and the seed heads do cling to clothes rather badly.

As long as the soil is kept moist then they should be  all right straight into the garden. Unless of course it is like ours and they get lost in the weeds.
