Some winter flowering clematis on the panels . Cirrhosa freckles perhaps. Viburnum bodnantense dawn will hide part of a panel and give wonderful scent.

Grasses for bees/butterflies?

Bringing back the Annual!

Also godetia, nicotiana, mesembyanthemum, tagetes,phlox drummondi, petunias.

All half hardy annuals to be sown under glass, pricked out and then ready to sell in May. A lot of this is old fashioned bedding, but the garden ventres and market stalls sell masses in may and june.

For selling I would do the following bedding plants in dozens.

white ayssum, blue lobelia, dwarf french marigolds, african marigolds, nemesia, 10 wk stocks, cosmos sonata, rudbeckia cherry brandy, rudbeckia cherokee, pansies, ostrich plume asters, cineraria maritimum silver dust.
