tree paeonies, eryngiums, aconitums, lots of umbellifers (or whatever we call them now) and ranunculaceae, primula, the sooner and fresher the better. Arisaemas, roscoeas, roses, I've has rosa rugosa flowering a year after an autumn sowing

Some will germinate very quickly if they're fresh, others will germinate in spring. None of then need heat and some will be inhibited by heat.

Aym, loads of hardy perennials can be sown now, don't get withdrawal symptoms. Sow some astrantia, aquilegia, anything hardy.

Plant relocation

They're said not to like being moved but I would think after only 8 months you'd get away with it. Give the ground a thorough soaking round it so you can get it root intact and it will hardly know what happened. It will be settled before winter. It might be better to wait til spring but the root will be bigger by then

Identification please

I don't think intestinal worms last long outside the host. It's worm eggs that are passed out to be ingested by a new host.

I have adblock plus Sue but still see the posted photos on the Samsung netbook. I haven't done anything except download it, that's as far as my IT skills go.

Mystery plant

I'm pretty sure this arrived in compost here. It appeared in too many seed pots in one year to be a coincidence and isn't a local weed
