True. Positive is always better than negative
Aconitums are poisonous if eaten but they don't have attractive berries to eat or anything that makes them look edible.
Unless it's a lot colder where you are than it is here you won't need fleece this year (so far).
The rosemary will be better in the ground, most things are unless it's the wrong ground or they're not hardy. Don't give the rosemary manure, it won't need any extra moisture holding or feeding.
If they were outside you needn't wait for warmer weather. Wet is the problem this year and it depends what your soil's like. I would plant is some parts of my garden, not others. If you dig a hole and it doesn't fill with water and the soil isn't shiny wet you should be OK
I like the flowers slightly smaller, they don't fall over like the ones that are forced. I don't mess about, I plant them in the garden as soon as they've finished flowering and let them sort themselves out. Usually a bit deeper than they were in the pot. I'm getting quite a collection now. The cream ones are lovely
Aquilegia does well in shade. Aconitum, pulmonaria,
A good plan is to go and look at other peoples' gardens and see what they have in shade and how well they're doing
I'd go with Lonicera. One of them, I think purpusii, tends to have leaves when it flowers and fragrantissima doesn't. But this may be just mine and where they are growing.
and I may have gotit the wrong way round
And same for love in a mist, that's ground-cover here
