One of the Euonymus ... possibly E. alatus.. aka Spindle tree ... the seedcases are red with orange fruits inside.  Usually the leaves have brilliant autumn colour.

Pdoc ... afraid that Momentum has too many similarities with the SWP for me to have any time for them.

Pat ... lovely bookmark   Although my knee was pulled about quite a bit it was very expertly done and I'm feeling no ill effects thank goodness.  

Trying hard to come up with a completely metal-free outfit for this afternoon .........

Get  them outside now before the weather gets cold so the sudden change from inside to outside doesn't shock them.

Put them in the courtyard against a wall ... just stand  them in a seedtray half full of gravel so that they drain well in the rain.

An old window (from a skip?) or similar to prop against the wall over them, leaving the sides free for good air flow is all the protection they need.

Don't forget to pinch out the tips when they're 6-8" tall. 

These Rudbeckias are taking over HELP

I think they'll be fine split and moved in the autumn as long as it's done before the soil's got  too cold.  It'll depend on when they stop flowering I suppose ... 

I think most hardy perennials respond well to being split in the autumn (with the exception of grasses).
