Getting the 'proffessionals' in

I'd start with a book, or electonic equivalent, on garden design.

John Brookes has done some good books but I'm sure there are many others.

Plants needed for heavily shaded area under fir trees

Lamium Mrs G. I like the one at the back.

Reminded by Will's G. phaeum, Geranium macrorrhizum is a good one as well and if you're willing to risk it, green alkanet, Pentaglossis sempervirens, a bit invasive though.

Too early to see what happens but I have a mass self-seeding of Eryngium giganteum under a group of pines. They look very healthy as foliage plants and can stand the dry

When do 'forget me nots' go to seed?

I don't think I'd move them now Chris, they might die before they seed. All energy is in seed making now with nothing left for root establishment. When they go dry, shake them where you want them next. Or transplant the seedlings when they come up. One plant left to seed should give you plenty

I don't think it's too late to sow cornflowers sanjy. They might be a bit late but they'll get there.

Sunshine I think buttercup is responding to the original post. To ID two plants for 2 people on one thread is tricky. Yours are buds, I think it's a wiegela but I can't see the leaves, another photo on another thread would be good
