I'm not a user of chemicals and I think it's a complete waste of time for newly germinated weeds but it would do the job on brambles

Cherry Laurel Privacy Hedge - Thoughts

you're better off with what you've got and some interesting plant in a wide border created in front of the fence. Cherry laurel (assuming Prunus laurocerasus) is huge in all dimensions and boring.

I think if they germinate they will be normal. Seeds, especially weeds, lurk in the soil and germinate when conditions are right, soil disturbed, enough water etc. they make normal plants when they do germinate.

Plant ID please

They're so pretty 

Hard to get rid of though so I don't try, just enjoy the flowers and the leaves don't hang around long

2015 isn't long ago. As SG says, depends what they are. I don't waste a lot of time and compost with well out of date seeds, just chuck them on the garden. But 2 years is nothing to the majority of properly stored seeds.

Rarely get a nut left for us, Keen. They only need processing if you pick them green for pickled walnuts. Otherwise, for us, they need ripening. Squirrels don't seem to care about ripening. They are mature though when the squirrels bury them, they germinate. Maybe I should take my chance and pick some as the squirrels start next year. Ditto the hazle nuts.

tbh, there aren't enough yet to make much of a harvest, I may put more effort into it in the future.

I don't think metal would affect the water and it's less likely to crack if the whole thing freezes
