No it's not honey fungus. Most fungi are at least harmless, mostly beneficial.

Looks lke a persicaria of some sort

The thing with the tassels and the small grassy one in the foreground are Carex pendula. This can be rather invasive and hard to dig up so don't let it seed around too much. It's lovely for a large wild garden like mine but not fit for polite company

Have I got an orchid???

I think the variation intemperature outside in winter is better than the constant just above freezing in the fridge. This is based on my experience nothing scientific. That way you don't need to decide how long to leave them either. I usually bring mine into the cold GH towards the end of winter so I can keep an eye on them. I like them in there once they've germinated so they don't get eaten or weather damaged so it's best to have them in there before they germinate

I'd do it in the dormant season, get the maximum amount of root possible and don't plant any deeper than it is now

Those last 2 could be Lysimachia ciliata 'Firecracker', or seeded from it.

Garden newbie: help with weed.

my first though was oxalis, then helxine, but neither of those.

I have an annual weed that looks like that but unfortunately I've never IDd it.

I'll put some effort into it. Maybe someone else will ID it for both of us

please id climber

I don't think it's a clematis.

It could be a depressed Trachelospermum jasminoides, can't remember the common name.

Had one, killed it
