Sat eve bump; am exhausted but triumphant; took a load of cuttings out of their zip-lock bags and they are nearly all viable (I think)
nut, I got a seed packet recently; the pic looks just like normal f-g-m-n but they flower much later in the year.
I can't see why you couldn't mix them, though Chinese for-get-me-nots are a new thing for me; just sowed them for the first time a few weeks ago in pots as I hear they are invasive. They may flower later than Sunflowers though.
If you are officially entitled to use 'Royal' then I guess you have to use it. Are you legally/officially a 'society'? If you don't have to be so formal/old fashioned, I would just say 'Gardening for Everyone in Shropshire'
Ayidas; I'm trying to guess where you are from the architecture; initially I thought Mexico, but then I thought Abu Dhabi? Am I right?
Steve, I was just about to ask that! I have pinched out the Morning Glory as they were starting to flail around and I don't see why one could not do that with Runners.
I would go for Mediteranean plants like Thyme, Lavender, a prostrate form of Rosemary, Sage etc. But still remember to water them as they may be protected from the rain by the building
A woman I used to know in West London would fill carrier bags with snails and take them to what she called the BBC park at White City...perhaps that's why they moved up North?
I would think that the droppings from any animal that is strictly herbivore would be a good compost accelerator and would add some nutrients. Lyn is right that there isn't much nutrition in compost; it is a great soil conditioner and soil needs the right structure as much as it needs nutrition for good plant growth.
