If you have to Fidget, a Deed Poll is easy to do by DIY. I did it online about seven years ago when I reverted to my maiden name some years after my divorce.

Good morning all.  Lovely day for a drive out Hosta - enjoy 

Wonder what adventures are in store for Wonky today  

No frost here, but think we may get a touch tonight. Very clear blue sky here this morning. 

Physio this morning, and a birthday present to buy for bestest friend ... Not really sure what - maybe a nice scarf from East? Shall have to have a wander around ...

I've heard from Wonky - she's been wielding a big petrol-driven hedge trimmer and big petrol mower and showing colleagues around her old stomping ground of North Suffolk and is very tired but happy. 

what are these plants please

The first looks like an annual chrysanthemum to me.

The second is cosmos, as Nut says.

You can't really 'dig them up' - the mycelium is spread throughout your garden.  They'll disappear as soon as the cold weather comes.  In the meantime just enjoy the wonderful sight

Spahgnum moss is useful because it holds moisture and air at the same time - both of which are important for healthy root formation.  

Moisture without air will cause roots to rot.  Air without moisture will cause roots to dry out and die.

Clematis 'Freckles' is a winter flowering clematis, so not what you're looking for.  It also grows quite large and in my experience is quite a thirsty plant, suffering quite badly if it gets dry at the roots, so I don't think it would do well in a container, even a large one.  

Clematis 'Avalanche' is sold as being suitable for containers and might be suitable, if the location is not too sunny
