Not sure but the leaves on the bottom one look a bit "geranium" like ???

See original post

 The leaves do a bit but I didn't think the stems and the way of growth looked right

the top ones look like Red Campion

I germinate both of these with no heat, very quickly. I never use heat on anything now.

I don't know which agastache you've got, the ones I grow are hardy but they're not all hardy.

Platycodon is a hardy perennial. 

Hard to say how any will cope with sudden change of circumstances, but they should be OK. Without the history of heat they would be fine

Have either of them got any leaves on or growing buds?

always worth a try.

I'm waiting to see if some dried out amemones I was given last week will come to anything. They swelled up when I soaked them bit so does cardboard.

some photos as promised in PM, jvenn

the first 2 are from the same position but not the same angle, February 2016 and today, The heap of shreddings almost hiding one of them. 

another after massacre pic

This is one of them today, It's about 5' 6'' and nicely rounded.

They don't all look so good because Storm Doris dropped a large conifer branch on a couple.

This last pic is of the roadside hedge, cut back a lot but  only to about 5', You can see it's quite gappy but new growth is coming up from the bottom now and will fill in. I prefer the first method. Stumps
