I've planted one where it will drop its seeds on the lawn. I might save a pot grow a few as well.
Lots of weeding and attacked by ants
They are very good self seeders
A lot of us have to prune them right back most years because the top growth is dead. They come back and I think they grow better on the years they've been cut back
My own seed, and your seed as well fidget, germinated in the first spring.
I can't work out the size of the second one peanuts. Is it a bit of a shrub or a small perennial plant?
That doesn't look like any skimmia to me, vaguely like laurel. Or maybe something not often seen in the uk. I await more photos from Frank
Good luck, they're not difficult but very different to growing veg and annuals.
Chill is the important bit, never artificial heat
They're still green for some time after there's no hope of life. A long miserable struggle for a few signs of life won't make a hedge. If that one has only dead leaves it's had it.
Not long to wait now
