Have they sprouted yet Andy, if it's what nut says, I think you may be in for a long wait to get it to hedge standard. If you want to Google it, there is a site that'll tell you how to grow the seeds, it's called euonymus alatus, it's sounds very complicated.

I am glad you are going to wait and see what's already planted, so many people move into another house and strip the whole lot out just for the sake of putting their own stamp on it.
You haven't long to wait, things are shooting up fast and as soon as some leaves appear, someone here can identify for you.
Sounds like this will be a fun thread, thank you for posting.

Sorry to hear that Kim, I can't even get my tubers to sprout, did you give them heat in the propagator, I have just got mine in the unheated greenhouse.
Anyone else any ideas as to why they have shown shoots and die when potted on.

I would assume Andy is growing Bassia scoparia, that is what we used to call the burning bush, they don't grow very tall, wouldn't make a screen hedging I don't think. Could be wrong any other thoughts.

Unfortunately Geoff, the more general chatty threads that are opened, the more it is open to misunderstanding s. There are loads of these threads being opened now, 2 on the weather, and about 10 others with chat about everything from soup to nuts, to coin a phrase.
I can see that this is obviously the way to go on the GW site, one only has to look at the amount of comments open chat gets compared to someone asking a gardener question.
Some attract no comments at all..

Did you remove the lid when the seeds showed, as Maud says, could be caused by 'damping off' they only need heat until they show.

Hanging baskets and pots how many plants will i need.

Try using richardii lobelia lasts all year, much stronger plants, doesn't go tatty, is infertile so no dead heading and you can propagate loads for next year.
