What do you want to do? Put stones down or enrich your ground to grow plants in?

That's a fantastic Lupin, how long has it been there, I find after about four years they deteriorate a bit. 

Dwarf Helianthus (sunflowers)-which is the lowest growing?

I don't know about that one, I am growing Teddy Bear which is also suppose to be short, 

they are only seedlings at the moment so will wait and see. 

Reading up on them they vary from 40cms to 1.5mts.! 

I have seen these for sale I'm Morrisons in pots, so I would think if you kept it in a pot it would, as anything will in pots, stay small. If given the right conditions it will grow tall.

A damp garden has nothing to do with lichen on the tree.

I've got one similar it's Salvia coccinea, but as Dove says there as so many.

Are these a bunch of aquilegia seedlings?

Transplant them around the garden, they don't like much messing about so don't bother to try potting them up, they are quite tough,

Direct sowing of dahlia and other seeds

I wouldn't try direct sowing of dahlias, start them off in pots and plant out when they are bigger, think it's a bit late now, they will keep for next March.  Just my opinion, that's what I'd do but it's up to you. 

What plant to use to underplant roses

Am I the only one who likes roses on their own, I don't like anything around them.

I would get those two out from the Hydrangea, in a year or two the Hydrangea will be very big and you won't see them, they are best planted together, so I would have put the whole lot of 8 in a small space.

Mine seem to have multiplied here, the drumstick type are a nuisance as they seed everywhere. I don't like them but they get absolutely covered in bees, so that's why I leave them.

As said before, deeper the better, they need to be deep to take the weight of their heads.
