I have enlarged to photo but can't spot the flowers you spoke of. I think you may have to post another picture when the leaves appear to get an identification. Meanwhile I would take Nutcutlet's advice and take out some of the older stems to open up the centre of the bush a bit.

I'm in Essex and did mine today. The top growth had started sprouting already so I cut back and mulched it to help protect the base of the plant/new growth.

Looks great - very professional! At 100kg very permanent too, how do you intend to use it after germination in spring?
