Are these Verbena bonariensis seedlings?

Plenty of time to take cuttings next year, you might need to protect it a bit if we have a harsh winter, depending on where you live. Right up against the house is good if you haven't got a GH. 

The seedlings will probably vary. The fancy varieties rarely seed true, are closer to the original species (tall in this case)

Keep a look out in spring, the seeds might germinate then

That would be my number one bet as well. 

Bulb questions

get them planted. Yes

Frits especially, they're better not dried out to sell in packets, 

I've often done this, The only time I had failures was when I planted very late and a long harsh winter started almost immediately. Once they've started growing they're fine and can stand more cold and wet

They don't look like Vb to me but I have no idea what a lollipop one is.

Too shiny and smooth edged

my first thought was one of the larger cotoneasters. grown up, hacked back, regrown.

C. lacteus or C.frigidus maybe

well worth it Dove. That way you don't lose the nice lichenified mortar.

Those concrete on brick steps at the far end of the garden lost a big chunk when the branch landed. Stuck back on in damp weather and still going strong.

I have no shares in Evo-Stik

Yes, that stuff called Sticks like sh*t. We lost a piece of steps when tree surgeons took down a big tree. Stuck it on with that and it's still there after 4 or 5 years.

Acer ID needed

Posted: 24/11/2016 at 18:24

It's an Acer pseudoplatanus cultivar, probably 'Brilliantissimum'

Which means it's a sycamore and needs to be watched for reverting to green

it probably is the photo size as Kitty says. They just don't upload if too large but nothing come up to tell you why.

I reduce mine to 30%
