Advice on plants

If you pinch out (remove) the tips of the stems they will bush out more. In that first photo, the shoot on the right, I would take off just above the two shoots that start about half way up the height of the flower.Called pinching out because that's what you do, just pinch them off with your fingers. I think as they can't go out yet I'd remove the flowers and flower stalk, that way more energy goes into making bigger plants with more flowers in the future. I can't see how big the pots are but if they're growing quickly you might have to use bigger ones

I admit I grow neither of these plants, so might be a good idea to see what others think

Last frost is unpredictable here. We've had them in June but that's unusual.

You'll have to wait til the frosts are over but you could stand them outside on nice days to start toughening them up.

 

fritillaria Meleagris

They stand up again as the seed heads dry and the seed matures, the seed stays put for ages. 

Wait till they're dry and brown and the pod opens. The collect them and sow them, don't save them, do what the plant does, sows its seed when it's ripe and leaves it out in the cold.

I don't think 3 is another eleagnus. It looks familiar. Hmmm

Dave, I'm not sure all would agree that I'm lovely

4 doesn't look very well
