I don't know about Laurel, but Privet is pretty forgiving, it may be worth trying.

I often use organic chicken manure pellets, if I was creating a new bed I would dig them into the top few inches about a week or so before planting. I have never bothered to read the instructions though; they may say something different. Always follow the guide lines on quantity per sq. metre.

I did once have problems with either a fox or a dog digging up earth where I had just sprinkled the pellets on and had not bothered to dig them in.

Water Butts

I bought some butts from a water company, it was 'buy one; get one half price.' Remember to get the stand and the drainpipe attachment too. I now have, 1 on the studio, 1 on the lean-to greenhouse, 2 on the house. Even with my smallish garden it is possible to empty them on a hot summers' day, and that is with a watering can

Ruby, remember when using weed and feed NOT to put the first few mowings on your compost heap, or in the Council green bin. Just bag it up and put in the household rubbish.

If you are starting a new garden, annuals are useful for giving you plenty of colour in the first year. BUT, there are lots of annuals that you will grow to love for their beauty, also using some annuals with the perennials allows you to change a flower bed a bit from year to year.
