What have I been given?

The little yellow buds at the bottom are spray chrysanths, you may be able to get cuttings from them then overwinter and plant out next Spring.

usually those miniature roses have been forced on for sale purposes, I would treat it as a houseplant, then prune early Spring like any other rose. I have had one for 10 years, and it still blooms.

you can keep the cyclamen going indoors, treat as a house plant.

I have never been let down by J.Parkers, they have lots of offers and free gifts,mine have always been fantastic, the hyacinths are really beautiful. Some will disaggree I suppose, but I have photo's of lovely shows of daffs. 

I do lots of tubs, probably about 40 or so, all Parkers.

I would say mint, does it smell when you rub the leaves? If it is, dont plant it in the garden, it will take over.

I cant see that a seller would put that in a batch of perennials though.

They are all the same plant.

I don't know about whatever the weather, you can choose a dry day!

I love privet hedge, I planted one in 2012, it's now about 5' tall, having been constantly picked out so it's as thick at the bottom as the top.

I love the smell of the flowers, takes me back to my childhood in London where everybody had privet.

The little seedlings will not survive outdoors in their first year, as it's late to sow, they won't be big enough to go out.
You will have slugs in your garden, they will chomp the tops off seedlings as soon as the leaves appear.
