Keep a good look out?

Agree with Buddyboy. Your Rhode does not have Ash die back or Sudden Oak death, but is poorly. Maybe be water, too little or too much, or not in a suitable acidic soil.

what will go with Delphinium summer nights

White Cosmos, Lupins, if sown now might flower next year, Ammi majus sown late autumn is a pretty, tall, white umbellifer. White Achilleas if sown early may flower first year, and the flat flower heads are a perfect contrast to the spires of the Delpiniums. White Nicotiniana, the list is endless.

Leave them in their pots, feed them as they are dieing back and keep the pots somewhere dryish over winter. I repot every few years into new compost.

It is possible to grow new bulbs from scales off the existing bulbs, but they take a few years to flower.

If they are small, leave them in their pots, planting out small plants in late summer is rarely a good idea. Do you know that they are hardy Fuschias, many are not, and will need protection every winter.

As Nut says, if moved recently, remove about one third of growth, this will mean roots don't need to work so hard. It should be fine next year.

Tomato roots as weedkiller

I am fairly certain that this is not true, seeing as at the end of the season, most of us compost our tomato plants, with no adverse effects.
