will my perennials flower this year

A lot depends on your soil and how much care you can give them. I wouldn't put a plug into my soil and expect success.

Don't let them get swamped by larger plants and  don't let them dry out and they stand a chance.

The other things is, were they ever hardened off or did they go straight from T&M's greenhouse to outside?

I'd plant it out as a lump then take cuttings to make new plants

Not watched TV since since I worked in a residential home in the 90s

Sometimes watch gardening progs on iplayer. I can fast-forward the bits I don't like.

Bigger numbers than I can deal with. It's all happening out there now

Outside container plants, beginner help required

You could put short term plants, summer bedding, bulbs etc in for a couple of years and buy small plants of the big ones you like and grow them on until big enough for the big containers. You wouldn't have to grow it indoors, hardy plants don't need to be indoors and it would have to be hardy if you're leaving the large containers out all year.

Does that make sense? I don't feel I've put that very clearly

Best Yew for topiary?

Posted: 05/04/2015 at 10:09

Yew is Taxus baccata. A lot of the cultivars, bred for shape and gold edges to the new leaves etc, would be wasted on topiary.

Just look for yew, or Taxus baccata

I have had catmint in flower late in the first season from seed but I think you're looking at next year really. So look after them. I'd grow them on in pots before you plant them out or they'll be struggling. The shrubs flowering will depend on how big they are now. The bulbs should flower this year if they're bulbs you've just bought for summer flowers. 

Cytisus 'Lena' shrub

It may sulk if you move it but you can try, take it with as much of a root ball as you can.

Those yellow flowers look like Kerria 

The bush with lots of yellow flowers, forsythia.

You can cut down whole stems of them both after flowering.
