Have you watered them? Water and heat = growth. I have never left them so long for frosts to Yblacken them and have had them growing for years now.
They do not have one per se, they just slow down in low light and temps of winter, esp in our more northern climes.
Am sure that there are website that ID rose varieties but I suspect it has grown from a piece of root or from a runner from another garden rather than seed.
A packet, possibly from Jungleseeds, so more probably not a UK native.
It is just a variegated Dracaena: so same as the non variegated one. It could be overwatering or it could be too much sun after being in shade for a long time.
Terrible shaky pics I know. Sown last year, took time to come up. Stayed evergreen all winter and continued to grow over winter. At least half hardy. Any ideas what these are?
Dig it up now in and place in a large trug - easy to keep damp and to move.. You want to avoid moving it when it is fully awoken and growing.
The sound like bog flies: putting them outside or in a GH will help. If you have to keep in the house then keep the soil dryish and use fly spray.
I would place it on top of concrete paving slabs to give a firm and level foundation. You will need it level to get all the sides in place correctly.
Certainly call him as it sounds odd to me. I can't see why he would go to the expenses and hassle of laying any sort of fabric underneath turf as it is totally redundant thing to do and as you say potentially going to kill the turf.
