4thPanda, have you worked what causes this  'accidental buying of shrubs'. I suffer from this condition as well and I can't find cause or cure

I'd have a look to see if it's still there bobbie. They're big seeds, easy to find. Do it gently. if you see a root, stop and put it all back. You'll get a shoot next spring. If the seed is still there and hard, don't cover it in a cold frame for winter leave it out.

It doesn't need water in summer if it hasn't made a root. If it hasn't germinated in spring nothing will happen before next spring. Rotting could occur

18 months ago would have been a spring sowing. Paeonies like to be sown fresh. But don't chuck it yet, as Reed says they can be slow. Also sometimes they just make a root the first year and shoots the next. It may have done that. Give it another spring

what do you see as a meadow effect? the plants you have there are the sort that used to grow as weeds in cornfields. Isthat what you want or are you thinking more of an old hay meadow or the prairie planting as Piet Oudolf does
