don't forget some climbers die back, but they're not dead. They regrow from the base. Note the dried curly bits on your 'Boston Ivy' 


Boston Ivy doesn't have those.


Some of the photos don't enlarge to a clear image but I think these are all clematis

most of the astrantias are fertile Andy. Hadspen Blood certainly is.


When Hadspen Blood germinate prick out the ones with most pigment in the leaves, some aren't very dark, none of the named varieties seed totally true.


I'm having a bit of a poke around re Roma, RHS says deadhead to prevent self seeding

so does Claire Austin https://www.claireaustin-hardyplants.co.uk/products/astrantia-roma


Its sterility might be another one of those things that everyone knows but isn't true.

the shrub is Viburnum tinus.


re the potting I'd take buddleia out with its rootball and put the new compost at the bottom and down the sides if there's a gap , not good to put it round the stems.


when it starts growing other plants will be shaded out

Ah now, Verdun 


I thought I'd  have a look around a few good places in the area. 


I've already been here http://www.swinesmeadowfarmnursery.co.uk/ 


and got another Sarcococca, they have a bit of a collection, some nice plants generally, I'll be back there. 


Then I need to go here http://www.rasells.co.uk/

Roma is said to be sterile, I haven't grown that one. But sometimes when you buy named varieties they aren't accurately labeled.

Yes, that's the best time, then leave them outside or in a cold frame/cold GH, and they will germinate in spring. Though sometimes, if they're fresh seed and not gone dormant, they don't need the cold and germinate in a couple of weeks.

try Chiltern seeds Sandra.


But these are best sowed for a winter chill and if you ask on the seed swap thread this summer someone will have some
