They won't if you've taken it all off. Bark is where the action is with trees
I missed the bit about taking the bark off, obelixx is right, don't do that. it doesn't matter where you put them, willows root.
Nut's method (that's me)
Leave the stems in water and after a couple of weeks little white lumps appear which are baby roots. Fascinating to watch, if you've got kids it's educational. Best size is from about pencil size up to index finger size.
Yes, leave them in water, they'll root and you can watch them
Not sure the leaf shape is right for Nadina. Wonder if it might be a Leucothoe.
I don't grow either so I can't go and check.
The other maybe Centaurea montana,
Difficult one Heather. I think I'd clear around and give it space for a start. Don't overdo any feeding, the shock might finish it off. A nice composty mulch to see it through the summer perhaps
I'd better do mine.It's hard to know where to start at this time of year
I wouldn't. They're not quick like annuals. I'd use a pot.
Japanese anemone is a name given to more or less any perennial late flowering anemone. Many are hybrids. Do you know what you've got?
I've got a white one called 'White Icicle' . Lovely thing. Also more inclined to flower before the leaves than by pink one so even more impressive
I don't think it needs ericaceous but a bit of light and leafy and not exposed to full sun or wind. The one I visit regularly has all this and is enormous in a fairly short time
