I wouldn't faff about with all that dark /light/warm/cold place business. Buy a pot when they're nearly ready to flower

Prepared bulbs are usually labelled as such and probably cost more as well. They've been treated so they think they've had winter and start growing when you plant them. These are the ones you can plant just up to the neck

Ordinary hyacinth bulbs can be planted in the ground like any other bulb, well down in the soil.

Yes, you can, they're seeds, they'll germinate. But unless you have some of the species fuchsias they probably won't be like the parents.

Those fungi do look like Honey fungus KA, sorry.

Most woody plants are susceptible to some extent, you won't lose everything though. Keep the survivors well fed and happy and clear the dead stuff out especially the roots which is where the trouble starts
