2 of mine do this, bits die back. I've always put it down to the rubbishy soil they're in.

Interestingly I have one that never does die back, it's the one in the most shaded spot The 'soil' is largely brick rubble with the odd plastic fertilizer sack thrown in.

My garden was used as a tip for years before our arrival

If these are forget me nots they'll flower soon and then die, They're biennials. 

Can you plant them out?, they'd look nice around spring shrubs.

If the pots are full of root they need potting on

Any named variety will be sold as one bulb at a price somewhere between excessive and ridiculous Rb.

For the white carpet you want Galanthus nivalis, bog-standard snowdrops. 

When is the best time to sow strawberries in the UK?

I don't believe the blue strawberries are real. Has anyone seen any growing?

Anyone done any gardening today?

Great gardening day. Working through the cutting off of last year's top growth. Found an elder growing into the Cornus mas, trunk must have been 3 inches across and I hadn't noticed. Cut back but I doubt I can get it out. Removed some of the mini forest of ash, field maple and other volunteers though.

There are some aches, I've been working on a slope

Dove, re letting more light in. It helps the weeds germinate more efficiently

Japanese anenome

I find a lot of invasive plants are difficult to get started. Jap anemones have never got established here (I still have hope and the space). Chinese lanterns were also slow to take.
