sowing antirrhinum

I fear Lyn is right about the early sowing. They're likely to get too leggy to support themselves on a windowsill. Protected like that you won't be able to put them out til all frosts are over and that's a lot of time growing.

It's not a marginal plant, just a damp lover. 

Though I have to admit I'm not totally convinced that it is purple loosestrife.

If I was growing delicate plants in a heated greenhouse I expect I'd might adopt an aseptic approach No expert. But I grow hardy plants and that have a tough life ahead of them. If they can't take it they may as well die young

I don't know what triggers the growth of snowdrops. They're no further forward in all the warmth of this year than they were in the cold of the last 2.

I'll keep my fingers crossed for them. They don't like being dried out to sell in bags in autumn.

If they don't make it buy some in February, leaves still on. google 'snowdrops in the green'

If any make it, even if they don't flower, they'll soon clump up

Viburnum tinus peaks around now but does what it likes when it likes. There are both on mine.

You didn't mentioned skimmia, I think some of those are male or female but I can't grow those in my very alkaline garden so haven't  investigated.

Hollies don't need to be that close, within an insect's flying distance. One in the neighbour's garden will do.
