I too am planting up Cornish walls and am using turf after removing large obvious weeds. you can peg in the turf with bits of wire take an apple core tool (from the kitchen) to plant in plugs and mini daffodills (some of the DIY stores are selling bulbs off cheap right now. Also there are the easy grow seeds. However I would advise planting them in trays initially and then when you plant out in spring come up with a design so you can see which are the plants and which are the weeds. Then as they die down when they have finsihed flowering you know what the seedlings look like as opposed to the weeds.
Don't forget to check your nettles for butterfly eggs and leave them be. Other nettles however make great plant food. Stuff a plastic container until you can get no more in. Fill up with water come next spring you will have free plant food. When ready to use strain into watering can at a ratio of 1 to 20. That way the money you would have spent on plant food will be available for more plants.
