 My answer was to the question asked by Laura, not an argument with you or anyone else

Wind flower is a common name for anemone. 

I think you have a white Anemone blanda there. They seed, not sure if white seeds reliably white, the default colour may be the mauve.

Just let them seed, they will. Or put a pot under the seed head as it ripens. Don't save it, sow it.

You don't often see the plants for sale, well, I don't

I've no experience of hardening off from growing indoors, I use a cold GH.

I find this year's seedlings flower before the ones that are perennial Edd. Just like some of the salvias, eg patens.

Not as huge as N, sylvestris  affinis more reliable for me. The evening scent, fantastic

Yes, beautiful

Too late to cut back cornus Alba aurea?

yes, stick it it the ground and cut it right back

Maybe in the reverse order

They've been indoors Edd.

N. affinis are almost hardy, mine came through 14/15 winter and I expect to see them this year. But not at this stage of growth.

You'll have to ask Dove about the sulking of that one aym but I don't think so.

as Fairy says the idea that you can't move paeonies is a factoid.

Just like 'wild flowers need poor soil' and 'you can tell the age of a hedge by the number of species in it'. Everyone knows it, but it's not true.

I think I'd get those into individual pots now, keep them where they are until they've settled in and then start hardening off
