Which flower/plant to use?

You can plant anything from a pot to the ground now as long as you don't let it dry out, or drown it, through the summer. 

If you chose something like white petunias they would give you a long flowering season,

B&Q etc are fine for those sort of plants

Nothing flowers all year, but you can replant with something else when they're over. 

Laurel Hedge

I have read, here and elsewhere, that laurels should be pruned with secateurs to avoid cutting the big leaves and causing unsightly brown edges.

The original author of this advice obviously never had a laurel hedge to trim, (or nothing else to do). Ours get the petrol trimmer every time.

Identify plant please?

Yes it's a willow, Salix caprea probably. and a female so no pussies to delight you in spring, just fluff all over the garden later on.

That's a vote for removal

Growing Herbs

There's nothing wrong with topsoil, it's what all my plants grow in, just not in pots.

You need something free draining for the thyme, rosemary and sage

Herb pruning is very much about snipping off pieces and using them 

I would go light on the fertilizers, the harder herbs are grown the stronger the taste and the hardier they are. This may not apply to Vietnamese coriander, I don't know what that is.
