Thanks auntie couldn't have put it better myself  So Inspiration get sausage making! Take a look at your adjacent neighbours and see if theres anything you like. If they can grow it you can too.

Why is your hedge so much higher one side than the other? Is it different?  

Is this correct ???

LOL Simple Cornish guy? Me thinks not....While you are here when are you going to enlarge the pics of your garden so I can see whats in it? You as a plantsman must know I have to know lol. 

What tree/shrub is this?

Pretty sure its beech. Hedge or tree like that growing anywhere near you? Like Dove said take it out! 

Is this correct ???

The name of the thread is Valerian officinalis  Hope he means this one its beautiful but tall!

Is this correct ???

Verdun he is asking about Valeriana officinalis.

Are you thinking of Centranthus commonly called Valerian?

What can I put in now?

I wouldn't put Anemones in full sun. They will survive but not flourish. So something with reasonable height...any colour preference? The Rudbeckias as FG suggested or Echinacea with grasses between would work well and behind between those Verbena bonariensis. Towards the front Sedum spectabile depending on how large an area you have to fill.

addict - I could make lots of rings then...and a few pots for good measure! 

Great description of doing a soil test addict- not heard it put like that before!

Oh dear lots of clay then FG.  I can't take credit for it. The RHS taught us. It was great fun going round the grounds and making mud rings lol and then onto the litmus testing...didn't want to mention that yet. When you are a novice gardener too much information can put you off gardening for life lol.

Is this correct ???

I grew these and even in a sheltered spot they needed support because they get quite floppy like delphiniums but so worth it if you can find a place because the smell is incredible. Do you have a cat btw?

Put a piece of landscape fabric in the bottom. Water can get through but nasties can't crawl in the drainage holes
