Dave is right, they can take -5C at best. I cover mine with fleece and it is in a sheltered spot, so is fine. If it is just wind damage (it may well be though I do not like the grey colour in the pic) then it will regrow.
Edd, the problem with that link is that is has over 1130 comments and now you have to navigate lots of pages to read the newest. I think a new topic is required for 2015.
For Sweetpeas you can sow a few seeds in one pot to get a thicket of them to grow, so it sounds like that is what they are selling. Given that there is 5 plants in each plug (to get 30 plants) I would guess 30-40cm distance between plugs. Train them up a post.
I was wondering if a Blue Spruce or a lime or yellow colours conifer would pick up the area.
You will find that it either comes back and regrows of rot sets in and it slowly dies. I do find Kalanchoe quite tough plants.
Yes Salino, quite right. I never opened that photo - it certainly looks like Miscathus giganteus, at least as it looks in winter!
My problem with bamboo in pots is the smallest gust of wind and even large pots fall down. Not much fun picking up a soaking wet bamboo in gale force winds.
The potted bamboo looks like Pseudosasa japonica, which is invasive and best in a large pot. It is confused with Indocalamus tessallatus which behaves itself, so it is worth double checking if you have a label or receipt.
Yes, but think about future size, so place it well.
Kniphofia northiae is unusual and evergreen Maggie. It is also suitable to a large pot.
