I'll need to replace all these but have no idea what with?

Budgerigars maybe

Seriously though, could you make a fenced enclosure for the dogs, if you replace what you have now, whats to stop them peeing on a new lot of plants.

You will need to leave the ground clean for a while before you replant.

Ours if free, we have big bags which they will supply and empty for free, the bags are given free up to five.. I asked about buying it back but they dont sell it to the public, only put it on their own gardens/parks etc,

Same weather here Marion, 3·3 at the moment with promise of sleet, I feel sorry for the people who took the chance and sowed seeds this week!

-your Hellebore above looks promising, mine are just beginning to pop open, very slow this year and the snowdrops havent opened at all, still standing straight. I have a photo of them from last year 18th Jan, all fully opened.

Do you have to pay yet for your green waste to be collected, ours is still free at the moment?

I fancy the Limelight, I bought a little Vanilla Fraise a couple of years ago from Parkers, only 6.99 and last summer had quite a few flowers, very pretty colour change. This year should be much better.

Also sow some more in Spring, the ones you sowed in the Autumn should have been sown in the open ground, they would then come up very tough, doing their natural thing

Lobelia/Pratia pedunculata or Blue Star Creeper

You must persevere with the cuttings, its so pretty and what a lovely big clump.

I had the Lobelia Richardii which doesn't grow from seed, I layered it, I don't know if yours would take the same, just pull out strands and peg it to the ground. May not work but worth a try.
