I have never used Parkers especially after the reviews of their quality and customer service from a majority of user of this forum. Try the Good Guys thread Lulu, there are numerous suppliers of plants on there which recommend good quality and service. It's a pity Parkers  and others don't read and take note of what is being said about them on this site, and I continue to wonder why the GW team fail to take note of the reviews of some of their 'Partner Offers' and the quality they provide, which IMHO is in some cases questionable.

Karen, have a look at the link below, it may be your soil or growing conditions.

Free fuchsias what to do now

Turn the pot upside down, or carefully tip them out to see if the root system fills the pot. If it does plant out, if not wait a few weeks then plant them out. It's better to form a good root system in the pot first and as nod says mulch them over winter, compost or farmyard manure will do, failing that ordinary garden soil.

Don, it's the seed head of the arum lily.

Depends how big it is really. You say young so presumably it's not that big. It may have objected to being moved which is fairly common or the soil isn't right. Buds prefers a well drained soil in full sun which can be fairly poor. So have you put it in the wrong place. Trimming back after moving helps any shrub to put down roots. Is it too wet? I'd have a look at where you moved it to first, then if it needs moving again cut it back by half.

Soulboy, that doesn't look like a fungal infection. Have a look at the link below and see if any of it fits your situation.

I'd use weed suppressing matting. Available in 50 meter rolls cheap easily removed and re used. Old carpet is counter productive it won't allow the soil to breathe. Cardboard is ok but it will disintegrate quickly especially with heavy rain. Matting will last you till your'e ready to start on the garden and you can lift in sections to lay turf or create beds when your'e ready.

Pyracantha is one of the best prickly hedges, it's great for security and keeping things or people away, plus you get the flowers and berries. It's easy to shape and can be cut back mercilessly only to come back twice as strong. People only bump into it once.

It's not cannabis, more likely a helebore as victoria has suggested.
