What is Himalayan firetail?

 

Partial shade - what is this ?

I wouldn't overdo the muck and feeding for flowers, especially small ones. Depends on what they are. You may get rotting of those that like dryer soils and lots of lush greenery at the expense of flowers in others

Partial shade describes an area that gets some sun and some shade. It's not precise.

Most of the more common garden plants will put up with what they get, that's why they're grown. There are exceptions but as Lyn says, you can move them if they're not happy.

I wouldn't mulch if the soil is very cold, wait for a warm spell and do it then. Mulch insulated to some extent and it's better to hold in warmth than ice

Old sack grade hessian if you can get it, some is close-woven and looks a bit smooth for deterring slugs.

Hi Dave, can't picture exactly what you mean but plastic and slugs go well together. Hessian is rough and might put them off
