Am I looking after weeds?

Hard to say whether they'll be any good. What I know as bedding asters are really callistephons, (that doesn't look right, but something like that). These are not them. and you're right, they wouldn't survive the winter.

You can certainly cut off dead branches, that's always a good plan. I'd shorten some branches as well if it looks as though it needs it but I wouldn't do one of those major cutting back jobs where you take everything back to a couple of foot tall

It looks as though it should be mauve doesn't it. I hope it is, not sure if I like the yellow.

ross, sorry you haven't had any replies. You'll probably find  someone on an internet search but we're all so widespread it's unlikely that anyone will come up with a local designer

Good luck
