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

I leave my autumn fruiting raspberries until February to cut them down. They provide cover for the robins and dunnocks to fossick  around and find food in when the hardest weather hits us.

Thanks Clari   Good morning all  And you too Pat 

Im still in bed with my second coffee. Our morning has already been enlivened by a contra temps between a GSD who is usually walked past here every morning in a very sedate manner and next doors youngest and very 'spikey' tabby cat. We're not used to barking, growling, hissing and spitting. I can only think that Pippin- cat had said something very disrespectful to the usually dignified dog. 

Curious - what do you think?

As for the chefs - I think most professional chefs OHs do most of the 'family cooking'.
