What does this mean???

Same here SGL,  I did them early when I first moved here, keen, as new gardeners are, but then we had a frost in March/April time and those top exposed buds went black, had to prune again, I dont rush anything now.

When to prune zebra grass?

Hedgehog or rats

Definitely rats! You will need to get rid or you will be overrun, they breed quicker than you can blink.

Curious bulbous thing

It is a Primula, its not a bulb it will sprout leaves out of the top, looks like a Denticulata, did I send you one last year? Bury it in a bit more Victoria.

I always order from Parkers, only sale stuff, but you do need to nurture them. I pot them up and keep them in a cold greenhouse for planting out when they are showing signs of growing well. Definitely not yet.

Dont plant out before Mid April, or later if they are not growing well.

Jennifer, as they are late, if it were me, I would cram then in a pot, double layered, as long as they dont actually touch each other they will look lovely.
