the leaves are the part that shows the health of the plant, if they're Ok don't worry. Berries sometimes rot as in all fruit

Where to locate seating area?

if your garden is 12 x 14m it's never going to be too far to walk unless you've spent too long in that bar.

Your plan sounds good to me, based on the conditions in your garden. 

Agree with Hosta, your garden, your choice

the posh varieties of D. purpurea don't seed true. they get closer to the species with every seeding. And much better for it imo.

Keeping an area weed free

If you cut back the growth and treated the ground with glyphosate you have done nothing. Weed killers work on plants not ground. But it's never forever. Perennial weeds persist, annuals keep germinating, you just have to keep at them by your chosen method. chemical, cover or dig/hoe

If you've had flowers, what comes next are seeds. When those pods are dry and brown, the seeds are ripe and can be scattered around to make more plants.

I don't know whose blog you refer to. Foxglove leaves get wet when it rains, 

as regards danger. if the kids didn't eat them by now they're not likely to. It's not the sort of plant that looks edible 

Panic about plants is the modern way but kids and foxgloves have co-existed since people evolved
