Keep going Dan, the small seeds can be quite fiddly as I find it very hard to sow thinly. Too damp a soil is another culprit of seedlings keeling over. When I sow seeds now,  I get my trays ready water  from the bottom, wait until you can see the water come through the compost at the top. Sow your seeds, cover with some fine compost and press down gently. I find that way the water is getting absorbed into the top layer. That's about all the water they get until they are bigger

Nasturtians are good seeds to try

Clematus montana or triffid?

I'd leave it be for a while, mine is only just really putting on any growth, most of it is still stick. I'd wait until it's actively growing and the flowers have gone.

I was a relatively late comer to driving. The last time I parallel parked was on my test I often let people out and thank those that do the same for me. My biggest bug bear is when people drive too close behind you.

I don't think they are hostas. Your description sounds similar to something that is growing just outside the garden. The leaves almost go into a point?

Can you take a pic?

Red hot poker problem

I just pulled it apart, it divided really easily into 3 pieces and just popped them  in the ground. Only one had a go at flowering last year but should get flowers off all three this.
