Anyone good with tricky seeds

I've been finding little Verbena bon. seedlings in the veg patch - presumably from the garden compost where I composted the 'prunings' from the border. I pot them up and give them a bit of tlc.

I bet if I tried to grow them from seed they'd be much less co-operative

Suggestions for filling a small south facing border

I remember my first one being a week late so I went out and did some heavy digging on a clayey border - no use - he stayed where he was for another week!

I've worked as a researcher in various fields - it's using a bit of lateral thinking to get the right terms to put into the search engine.

Ah, petunias - they've got jolly big leaves!
