I can't work out the size of the second one peanuts. Is it a bit of a shrub or a small perennial plant?

That doesn't look like any skimmia to me, vaguely like laurel. Or maybe something not often seen in the uk. I await more photos from Frank

Good luck, they're not difficult but very different to growing veg and annuals. 

Chill is the important bit, never artificial heat

Are my common Laurels dead?

They're still green for some time after there's no hope of life. A long miserable struggle for a few signs of life won't make a hedge. If that one has only dead leaves it's had it. 

Plant ID please

Not long to wait now

They do need to be in damp compost or some other medium for the chilling. If you  put them in the fridge dry it makes a very good seed storage place.

As Dave says, fresh is best. Off the plant, into the gritty compost and just leave it outside to get on with germinating which it will do the following spring. Once they've gone dormant it's a longer process.

If I was using the fridge method I think I'd have them in there longer.

I'd agree with euonymus Dave, not one I know though

Are my common Laurels dead?

They're not all dead and they're too close together. Take out the dead ones and see what you've got left. They won't look so depressing with the dead ones gone. Laurels are big plants
