What sort of leaves has it got? Can you describe please. Stephanie. I can't see your photo bucket without a link on my tablet.

I think that will work Tommy, get it nice and flat, spread the seeds on, (go by the box for the ammounts, I am not sure), then rake them gently in.  As someone said on a Farmers prog on the radio some time back, "the secret of a good lay is a flat bottom" ! the prog went dead for just a second, as you can inagine.

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.
