Plastic boards

You're right Fairy , very thin. Scaffold boards if you just want one layer or fix two or three 4 to 5" boards together.

Those seedlings do look like violets, I have the wild ones in the garden but can't get rid of it, the roots just cling to the soil. They choke everything, I suppose the species ones would be nice.

Lyn, I've not tried anything yet.  

I'm not a fan of any medication unless I'm really , really poorly and, mercifully, not quite there yet.

It's not medication as such, you just buy it over the counter. If you just tried it for a couple of nights? It's better than that prescription drug!

Thought it was good as entertainment,  but does everyone have almost 3.000.00 to spend on the garden, lots here have said it was a realistic price, I have to wait for seeds and cuttings  to furnish my garden,

I remember you saying that before Dove, three leaved cuttings are not that easy to come by.

Pruning new hedge - have I killed it?

Let us know what it is, I can't imagine who wrote instructions for you to snip off all the buds! 

If they were 3'  when you planted, you can cut them back to 2ft, that will allow them to shoot out from the bottom.

need to know what they are, but that's generally what you do with hedging

When you see new shoots, cut it back to about two inches from the soil, repot, knocking some of the old compost off, look for vine weevils, then repot in a pot just a little bit bigger than its in now. You can start to feed with a tomato feed  when you see flowers buds appear. don't feed before, there's enough in the new compost and it will just run riot with green.

Fascia boards for a builders merchant or DIY.  i don't think they  wI'll be as cheap as scaffold boards though.
