Trumpet Vine are notoriously slow in blooming. It can take 5 to 7 years for some to bloom.
10 years if it was grown from seed.

Q. planting

Hello, this is my first attempt at planting. The plants I got are still in the plastic covering that they came in when I bought them. I water them and I give them sunlight too. They wilt and then they die.. I have no idea what I’m doing wrong…

If the "plastic covering" that you're referring to is the plastic wrapper around the soil and root system of the plant, it's usually okay to leave those on until you plant them in a container or in the ground. Depending on which plants you got (it sounds like they are still very young? If so, these are called "seedlings"), they may be getting sunlight that's too direct and too hot, or you may be overwatering (or not watering enough).

Search http://www.gardeningknowhow.com for the type of plants you have. You'll find plenty of tips on how to properly care for them. Here are some articles to get you started, and let us know if you have any more questions:

I have not found any information regarding a plant called 'dogsled'.

If you use a chemical treatment, read the package directions carefully to make sure the application is done correctly and safe for the environment you are using it in.

Q. Rooting cuttings

I have some cuttings which are from my grandma’s funeral wreath and would love to keep them growing. The flowers seem to still be very healthy. Are the usual methods going to work with these flowers as they will have been cut a while ago. Thanks

Neem Oil is good treatment for most pest and fungus issues, though not every Leaf Spot disease may be cleared up with a fungicide.
Here are some links with more information.
