The most likely cause is that it dried out at some point. They need rain water rather than tap.

Can anyone ID these plants?

I'd second the hardy geraniums. There are so many and they'll provide a whole seasons colour especially when you cut back after the first flush. Alchemilla Mollis also works well providing a different shade of green.

Can I move my beloved Cornish Palm?

That's precisely why I asked Verdun. I have one in my garden 5ft tall. I tried to move it 2 years ago absolutely no way on earth it would come out without machinery. It's always survived even the hardest frosts it's been in the garden for 18 years and tough as old boots. I do love it though.

Which Garden Screen - Reed/Brushwood/Willow

To be honest all three are easy to put up. The brushwood ones last a little longer. If you're attaching to a tree use decent garden wire, cheap from wilko about £2 1.6mm wire you get 20metres on a roll.

Personally I use long range weather forecasts. These people are very accurate. They don't give actual dates but their long range forecast's got this winter down to a T and last summer what there was of it.
