That bed may get a bit dry with that tree in it djjjuk, I'd factor that in when choosing your planting scheme. there are plenty of sun lovers which would go well there.
djjjuk, you could bury that so that the bare stems at the bottom are covered. That would encourage new growth from the buried stems- result free new lavender plants. Just a thought.
Looks more like syringa common lilac to me.
I'd move up a size if the roots are escaping. You may want to consider splitting them when they go dormant. As you say they do like being confined but what you describe is maybe a bit too tight.
Hosta, pulmonaria, tiarella, bergenia's, shrubs, skimmia's, mahonia, sarcocca, will all tolerate that sort of position. If your'e potting a shrub make sure it's in a large pot.
Micheal, sharp sand, not builders sand. You can mix it with MPC for cuttings.
Yes peanuts, the new growth will come from the bottom
Keep it well watered ryan 3 the recent warmth will encourage it to germinate. You sowed it a bit too early really, be patient it will come.
The secret to rosemary is very well drained soil, almost sand and direct sunshine. I have one on a very dry bank in full sun. It loves it and the flavour when used in cooking is outstanding, my lavenders love it too. The sharper the drainage the better.
Forsythia and laurel can both be hard pruned, the forsythia after flowering. Both are vigourous growers. I'd hard prune both if suitable, it would probably give you a better shape, and then feed, they should grow away over the summer months. laurel can be pruned to ground level and grow 4-5 ft in a season.
