With all this heat and dry weather you need to water it in Asap budsgardens.  Can you borrow a hose or buy one?  Friday is a long way off and your lawn is likely to suffer I think. Relying on rainfall too is risky.....

Yes I'm afraid they will root and grow .....without any doubt at all Welsh Daffodil.  I suggest you let them grow and spray with the strongest glyphosate mix you can get. Readily  available.  Make sure conditions are good for the spray,,viz., at least 6 hours of dry weather and,,ideally, not in hot sunshine.

What is wrong with this shrub?

Replant my bamboo - or kill and start again?

Bamboo is a thug dominoman.  It will do just as you have observed.......invade every part of your garden.  I don't think you will kill it whatever you do.

Could be frost Jason.....esp if you left door open.   Could also be strong sun.  Young tomato plants are sensitive things.  Or have they dried out?

you could drape fleece over them or,suspend it above them at night time and during hot times until more mature.

i once lost a whole batch of tomato plants my naivety I used too much dried cow manure and the fumes during a hot day destroyed them.  Gardening is a learning curve.

Can anyone add to this list?

To use a trowel for planting instead of my hands.  Impatient me ends up with sore fingers 

to sow later in the veg patch.......later sowings do catch up

to thoroughly check out new plants for their invasiveness. to check their pots for nasties...pests and weeds. To politely refuse offers of plants I don't really want.
