Plants not thriving in new home

If you are re-potting, I don't understand your problem as you have complete control over the plants. I doubt it is the water as you drink it, don't you? What soil are you using?

Get yourself a waterbutt, it will fill up surprisingly quickly. Just make sure you cover it closely at all times so the water stays good and insect-free.

Tomato seeds can be saved. You have to ferment it first, then wash and dry it. All the others are pretty much a no, no. Courgettes especially as they are very promiscuous and you are unlikely to get what you expect.

If, when and where to use straw?

I would contact the council and ask them if they would like the tree. And where should it go? If you can't find anywhere for it, I would dispose of it and do a bit of guerilla gardening and plant some acorns here and there.

It will move well in the dormant season.

Depending on the rootstock, some trees need staking for their entire life.

Willow Tree

February is a good time to cut willows. Cut to the ground then they will grow again. It will be happier in the ground rather than a pot. But it does depend on the variety. You didn't say.

Corn Cockle can kill?

Useful for what? decorative but deadly?

Berghill, it is a shame you mentioned Water Dropwort, because it really is deadly, especially to grazing stock. I doubt many of the people on this board will ever meet it and do not know what it is, but it is quite common.
