I want plants that do more than survive B3. Pansies only flower in winter if growers get the timing right, they wouldn't do that naturally, they're not winter plants, they survive

I just let things be but that's how I run my garden. Things seem to balance themselves out over time.

I agree with Verdun re pansies, waste of space. Those mentioned, plus sarcococca if you want a shrub with a great scent and not as miffy as daphne, Cyclamen coum, snowdrops. 

Is lawn edging popular?

not for me thanks

I don't like the sharp cut-offs and the cliff edge and the gap between one thing and another. I like my garden to look free and generous with a flow between one thing and another

Coriander Seeds - How Many is Thinly ?

Ah, NewBoy. If only I could work that out.

I'm the world's worst judge and always sow too thickly

But I'd say yes to compost, soil always has weeds even if it's good soil

If they were mine;

I'd dump the spiraea

Thin out the weigela, cut half stems right to the base, and leave the rest til next year. These are best pruned by cutting out the older stems to the base which gives the young stems room to breathe.

Do much the same for the cornus.
