I think I'd go with Edd on that one though the future may not be too good either way

Growing plants in sterile medium

I'd check to see how she'd feel about your idea. It's very thoughtful of you but in her position I don't think it's what I'd want. It would constantly remind me of what I couldn't do.

Where are you Newbee, we need to know if you've got a little blue shrub or a tall yellow flowered perennial

or neither of those

Giant Echium (echium pininana)

Is the 5 foot tall one coming up to flower? I don't grow that echium but the ones I do grow are just rosettes until the flower spike starts coming up.  

Also I've found some to be monocarpic, but more tri than biennial.

Tree Peony Transplant

Get as much root as possible and don't plant it any deeper than it is now.

If it's enormous I'd remove a few branches so it doesn't rock around through the winter and you may need to stake it to keep it firm.

I can't think of anything else, someone else might. 

I hope it moves OK

The first might be caryopteris. Is there any more info available? 

Flowers would be blue and the shrub small. 

I think Edd is right with the second

That's quince as in chaenomeles, a flowering shrub not Cydonia a fruit tree.

Still edible though

Put them in the garden Chrissy, they'll be OK

Go on brag about your Autumn Foliage!!!!

Wild cherries and field maples are glowing above and a carpet below. Cotoneasters lacteus, 'Cornubia' and horizontalis are showy. Malus baccata is full of berries and so are some of the spindles.

Looking pretty fine in the sunshine
