The hollow bit goes on top. leave the top exposed with the rest inthe compost. It is fairly late to be planting them but, they might flower. Start them in a pot in a warm place to give them a good start. Then put them out later in the summer.

Gilly. Millium effusum aureum is a bright yellow/green grass that maybe what you are looking for.

Can anyone help identify my fledging perennials...

Although most of them are perennials it is not unusual for them not to survive our winters, so they are probably best treated as annuals.

Likes shade and moisture, typical woodlander.

Is ivy a good thing or a bad thing?

On the positive side. It flowers late in the year providing a late nectar source. The berries are eaten by birds in the winter and nest in it in the spring.

Quick growing rhododendron or azalea - is there such a thing?

Blairs. I dont like to disagree but I have a number of Rhodes and in 10 years they have probably only doubled in size.

Obviously there are many species but, the majority are slow growing.
