I've used wood chip as a mulch in my woodland area which are beech trees, along pathways, between paving stones. I have use it on a bed as well, not sure about the vegatables though. Great that you have such a constant surply

I've had success with the montana ones taken last year, went to stick in the winter but started growing again

I would start to move them all outside, here the nights are mild are at the moment.

I don't have a greenhouse and grow annuals as well as other things, they do take off when it's warmer so plently of time to enjoy the flowers. If you've grown  the foxgloves from seed it's unlikely that they will flower this year as they are biennual so they will flower next year

Potted on some today into small cubes, they had quite a bit of root on them.......so a lot easy to do than I expected.

What sort of conditions did they self seed artjak? I'm hoping that mine will do the same

Are they weeds or are they poppies?

I've had several of the welsh poppies self seed here, they are pretty. I think they tend to disappear after they have flowered

I pinch out a lot of things once I think they plant is big enough, if i'm not sure I do a couple, have a look and usually do the rest. Just trying out the cornflowers and corncockles. I had good results last year from doing the same with snapdragons. I cut back some over wintered larkspurs and they bounced back
