You absolutely will be an expert gardener, we all had to start, you will learn what works and what doesnt.

Personally, I dont bother to sow annuals in the Autumn anymore, they dont get much light, risk getting eaten, as you say, and the Spring sown ones catch up just the same.

 You worry about them and I have found its just not worth the hassle. You still cant plant them out until you harden them off, by then, your Spring sown ones are much the same.

Cornflowers are easy to grow and if you sow some mid March, they will be just right for planting  out in May/June time.

The seeds I do sow in the summer to Autumn are perennials, foxgloves, delphiniums etc, and take cuttings then of plants I already have.

I'll need to replace all these but have no idea what with?

Budgerigars maybe

Seriously though, could you make a fenced enclosure for the dogs, if you replace what you have now, whats to stop them peeing on a new lot of plants.

You will need to leave the ground clean for a while before you replant.
