Hostas

The plant may go into a bit of shock if it was actively growing. I got mine off a lady who split the plant when it was dormant in Autumn I think. I'd give it a good drink, I'd say that it will survive just might not be at it's best this year

Pinching out

Don't think it would do any harm, I'd expect them to get a bushier. Don't think I've ever pinched out Cosmos. Maybe do a couple and see what happens?

Wallflowers

Beautiful wallflowers Matty, fab colours, do you remember the name of them? I've only tried cuttings on the Bowles Mauve type but I guess it's the same.

I grew some Cloth of Gold one year and they did flower well in their second year
