For 6 its a heleianthus although don't don't ask which one. It's not lemon queen but there are hundreds of them.

They should be fine as long as you keep them dry.

Autumn leaves

Chrissy best way with wet leaves is to blow them into corners or piles then Barrow them. Suction is only good for dry leaves. Doesn't matter if it's petrol battery or electric and the bags on the machines are so small you spend more time emptying them than gathering the leaves. It's a slow laborious job it's all I'm doing at the moment as well in 4 different gardens between half and one acre. She has to spend the money and be convinced that the mould is a valuable resource for her garden.

Hosta is partially right(no offence hosta), if you start to train the three stems you'll end up with three growing points. Apical dominance will mean the two extra stems will then be the main growing points whereas you really need to encourage the main growing point from the original stem first. You don't prune the main stem at all, leave it alone as when the two other stems are taken out the main stem will take over. When you get the new growth next spring then train to the horizontal although in my experience all you need to provide is the framework and the wisteria will almost do it by itself.
