I'd get them going as soon as possible.  Christmas is the traditional time to plant them.

Have you pruned the bush recently?  The amount of rain we had last summer has affected some shrubs in unexpected ways.  Usually in a good way.

I would leave the shoots, unless you want the bush to remain small.  Perhaps tip prune them, but don't cut them right back.  You can be more drastic when you see how the bush develops.

Do not put in the compost heap, they will grow if they have roots.  They will also grow from the bottom part of the stems.

Laying the seeds on edge is the answer.  They will rot on their sides.

ThaiGer, cut it back?  There are only 6 leaves on it now!

Get it outside, where it belongs.  Yes, I would also check whether it has a decent root-ball.  If not, take it back.

You can buy traps in old-fashioned hardware stores or agricultural suppliers.

Those potatoes should not be chatting in the cupboard.  Get them out and chitting in the light, in a cool place.
