What did you do with the seedlings, they should be potted up and kept in a GH conservatory or window sill until they fill big pots, then planted out. 

The Begonia corms always come like that, dried out, you start them off in a seed tray indoors,  with the tops out of the compost. Have they only just arrived, pot them up, they grow on until first frosts, plenty of time.

It may be worth bearing in mind that Buddleia globosa flowers on last year's wood, so prune back straight after flower and never next Spring or you won't get any flowers, 

Help! I'm not sure what to keep!

Could 2 be one of those tall campanulas, I've got loads of it here, looks like that before flowering. Maybe wait for some flowers on that one for a positive ID

so dissapointed 😞

will need to protect last two in ground. 

The three planted in grow bag will put them indoors for now. 

We had some good sun last week lots of warm days when i planted out and this week its grey and miserable. 

See original post

 And there lies the problem, too much fluctuation in temperature. You need to bring them at least another 30cms away from the wall.

Moving eryngium

I don't know the correct times for moving anything, I just move them when I want too, providing they are of a manageable size,  as long as the ground is wet or you give a bucket full of water, they should be fine.
