Sorry but I totally disagree.

Lupins like good moist soil. I have even managed to get them to do well in my bog garden.

Water well, decent soil, but I agree, not in a pot.

 Totally agree with you. My Lupins are huge and flowering now beautifully.

Butter cups grow from a central spot, this seems to be shooting out from different places.

I think it's geranium, did you plant one there?

I would cut the flower off,  the plant is too small to sustain flowers yet  and to make root growth, then give a real soaking, stand the whole thing in a bowl or bucket full of water. In a clay pot it will need a soak twice a day. They really are best put in the ground.

Need CPR for my strawberry plant

For a plant that size, I  would forgo the fruit this year and cut the flowering stalks off, let the plant build up bigger and you will be rewarded next year. 

Pond questions.

All my plants are just thrown in, they find there own way and my pond water is always crystal clear.

 How did you manage that, I thought you had to mix two together.

Leggy stocks seedlings

I don't  know what to say for the best there,  they are very leggy and weak, if you plant them out they will be chewed by slugs. I would try potting on in a little pot each, sinking in even more and wait until you have a big plant before planting out.

What are these and is it worth keeping the bulbs that didn't flower?

I agree with Nut. Look at the centres.
