I don't know how you're supposed to figure out which are non-flowering shoots. I thought I'd done that, but it started to develop a bud anyway. I clipped it off but now it appears to be trying to make some more. Am I doomed to failure because I started with the wrong thing?

Also, I'm growing my cuttings (carnation and verbena so far) in little 'greenhouse' trays on the windowsill, and they are rapidly growing too tall for the containers. Am I doing something wrong, or should I just keep trimming them down?

At the moment I'm checking them daily, giving them water and rotating the pots a smidgen to make sure they don't lean towards the window. I do wonder if I can keep this up until the spring - and whether the cuttings will too...

Too warm and poor light-windowsills are not ideal-from another thread you say you dont have a greenhouse so you are at a disadvantage

You can only do what you are doing- perhaps a well lit cool room window would be preferable

They are unlikely to flower now-seed varieties are not as reliable as tuber raised plants-what did you feed them with?- (if anything at all)- but you should have got some flowers-it may be the cultivation combined with the weather.
