Ah, transplanting, no loppers then


osmanthus and viburnum

Goodness rosemummy, I'm not the person to ask about planting distances

But I do have an osmanthus probably burkwoodii flowering in some shade.

You could use a pair of loppers, shove them into the ground and snip. It won't do the loppers a lot of good but the trees will be gone.

I'm surprised you've got 2 year old trees in a lawn, I get loads of tree seedlings in grass but they don't survive a season's mowing

osmanthus and viburnum

Hellebores, snowdrops and aquilegias will be happy under the viburnum as long as they have head room. The osmanthus, being evergreen might  make it too dark and dry.


Grass seed

I'd go for a pack of cheap and cheerful grass seed and a packet of white clover seed if it's not there already
