snap dragons,

Caroline, they will be fine.  BThey are actually perennials....mostly.....albeit tender.  I would look to pot on.   possibly will not be yellow again though.  You might have something excitingly different.  Looking at leaf colour can often suggest a different flower colour too 

Some of the best snapdragons I grew were far better in their second year......mild here so it does depend on the winter you have.

Pleasant walk to the beach.  People strolling everywhere.  Missed the odd isolated shower some had locally.  

Not recommended really but now going out to divide a huge miscanthus.  Half is promised but the rest will be replanted and potted up.  If your garden is a little drab folks you could do worse than grow a miscanthus or two.  Mine are still in flower 9' or so tall and unafffected by wind and rain and making superb structure over winter.

Missie, is it in a big pot already?  Has it been growing outside ?  If it has been well used to being outside these past months and the ground is suitable....not frozen, can plant now.  

If your plant is small then hang fire for a while

Runnybeak, pretty sure your salvias and hydrangeas will be fine.  I would take the opportunity to see if you can pot on now.  Salvias especially respond to extra root space 

Tetley, that's nice.  Spent years as an accountant.......booooooooored to death.
