Agree with Hosta on the Hypericum,  strange sedum, or is it just mine that don't flower until very late summer? 

Worrying state of my new lawn's topsoil

James, I would follow exactly what Dave has just said, drilling holes and filling with sand won't do it. It needs to be broken and mixed.

Marc, as you go on you will come to learn what shoots up in days and what takes several weeks, I always sow Lobelia and Petunias early because they take a long time to grow.  peas, beans sunflowers, usually the bigger seeds come up in days, you will get to know what's what, have you got a book with the dates  you sowed everything, and comments of when they came up, you can then look back next year and see what to sow that bit later.

I would leave it until first week in April, then cut back to the next nice bud. If you do them early the frost will have them and you will need to do it again anyway.

It will, I just chop them back with a hedge cutter, any time they get out of hand., they will grow cut right from the base, and nice and thick. I assume it's the one with the tiny little leaves?
