I'm so so bored stiff

I have occasionally kick-started something that seemed to be taking a long time to germinate but I whip them out of there at the first sign of action so they don't get soft.

But I only grow hardy stuff so no trouble with aftercare. I wouldn't do that right now, they're just outside or in a cold GH and germinate when they will. Come April, when I think they should have germinated, I might try it as a last resort.

for later on, one of the small flowered  asters, an ericoides or laterifolius cultivar. 

There's an ericoides called 'Pink Cloud' or something like that. 

New to gardening and no idea where to start

 Hi Gulliver, welcome.

You'll probably want to do something about that pond. It's never going to fit in with anything stuck out there and you won't get the frogs/toads/newts in a raised pond. There may be insect (eg dragonfly/water beetle) larvae in there though so rescue them to a place of safety if you dismantle their home.

The fallen tree could be sawn up to make a woodpile for all sorts of exciting things to live in

It's insect pollinated so the pollen/nectar side should be OK. It's not native so there may not be anything that feeds on the plant.

That's a good idea Clarington. I haven't written mine yet but this may be the incentive.

If this is Mirablils jalapa, the flowers don't last long but there are a lot of them. I love the scent but they're not very striking visually.

Have you got it inside Safeer? I've only had one plant go through a mild winter.

 They may indeed have got the bad vibes Forester. I may give them off strongly at times. Ask any houseplant

I was given 3 plants last year. the fruits fell off every time they they nearly got ripe. It may not have been the plants' fault

I wouldn't have grown them if I hadn't been given them, I don't like them much
