Currently sitting on my hands - I always start off seeds too early. Good advice above. I am  not going to start too early this year. I repeat I am not going to start too early this year...

Plant Indentification

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.

When is the best time to prune Group 3 clematis?

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?

Shrub identification please

The shape and number of the leaves made me think of a  Cornus. Any evergreen ones?
