autumn sowing is good for the totally hardy plant but neither of those you mention are fully hardy.

I have a forest of cerinthe seedlings but if we get a prolonged very cold spell they won't be there at the end of it

Growing Japanese Anemones frombulbs

I'd put them in pots and nurture them a bit. They're bits of root, not bulbs and it amazes me that those dried up things survive at all. For a plant that can be quite invasive it can be hard to establish, even with fresh bits of root. The sooner you plant them somewhere, the better. roots need to be in soil or compost

I know nothing of plum trees but of course gardening is full of myth and old wives tales, that's life.

I love to see the native plants. A lot grow here. Rarely get to eat a nut though, too many squirrels.

Yes, just make a slit, might need a spade, easier to push in than a trowel. Also you can dig out a lump of soil with that and do a few small groups as well as singles

Try and get them in a natural looking arrangement, thinner and thicker patches. It gets them off to a more natural looking start. You should be able to see how deeply they were planted before
