I need an evergreen bush to go in a extra large pot.  One that has some interest

 

Phacelia

I have been given some Phacelia seeds, I don't know what type of Phacelia, but apparently they are helpful to bees.  What I need to know is how high do they grow and do they spread.  Can anyone help?  I think it is time to sow them now.

Is it too late?

30 years ago we moved into our house, the garden sorted by previous owners, looked good. However, two boys, one dog and working we did not have time or money to keep it going. We kept it tidy and I grew certain things by seed, but that was it. Originally the site was a pig farm and very sticky (clay) also when digging have found bricks, rubble you name it, it must have been the site tip. We have now retired and would like to improve the earth so we can grow without mildew, caused by water laying I guess. We live in Kent, so normal years we have warm summers Generally with a hosepipe ban. Can anyone help with the earth situation or any thing else. Sorry about the life history, thought I would put you in the picture.

What is the best for general planting and potting multi purpose compost or peat free multi purpose compost. Sorry if I have posted this twice.

Grass!

I have a small patch 10ft x 8ft which I need to seed, can I do this at this time of the year. We live in Kent which has mild winters normally. As I write this the sun is shining directly onto he patch. If this is possible is there a certain seed that is recommended?
