Mike, I think it would be interesting to know about peoples' gardening interests and see a photo of their gardens. 

Qualifications? No. I agree with Hosta. Forum respect is earned by rational, accurate and helpful  posting not from letters after your name.

Finally managed to propagate Laurel

Not tried it in pots. Pinning stems to the ground and covering with soil  (layering) is very successful. Laurels will do that for themselves if branches rest on the ground.

Always more reliable that cuttings for me because they need no attention.

unknown plant from a mixed packet

No idea fidget, it's not my plant. Focus was a difficulty for me, you can't quite see the shape of the flowers can you?  I think it is Monarda citriodora, the owner had IDd it previously but forgotten

good point re if they've been indoors GD. But all the ones I've seen in GCs have been outside.

If they were outside and the ground isn't frozen, ours hasn't been frozen at all yet, plant them. 

Growing Evening Primrose plants

Evening primroses aren't primroses Shirley. Common names of plants are designed to confuse and they succeed

Primroses are hardy, plant them out.
