Hi and welcome Hellotreacle

Don't worry - it'll all come right.  Can you take lots of photos of the garden and the individual areas and the problematic areas and post them on here - that will give us an idea of your options and the best order to tackle them in.

To post a photo on here you need to click on the green tree icon on the toolbar above where you type your post, and follow the instructions.

Hi Flowers in the rain and welcome

Your plant is a hardy perennial, so it will die down over the winter and reappear and flower again next year. 

It can go in a container, but I think it will be happier in a border, if you have room.

Some info about it here:

You don't know where I've put the connecting joints for the metal cloche frame for the raised bed do you?

Does anyone know where I've put the joint thingies for the Botanico metal frame that fits over the raised bed? I was going to erect it and fix some pigeon netting to it, but I can't find where I've put them - I thought they were in a box marked Cloche Fittings, but they're the fittings for the other cloche

dog bite,anyone know for sure?

And without wishing to cast aspersions on the dogs in question - there are inherent difficulties in taking on some rescue dogs - one has no idea what sort of experiences or training the dogs have been subject to, that might make them unreliable in certain situations.
