Replacing a leylandii hedge

I agree with pansyface about doing it in bits.

It won't be an easy place to maintain as a clipped hedge. A row, or staggered double row of mixed planting would give you something for all the year

The fumitory is an annual, take some out before it seeds if you don't want too much. I don't think it would become a problem

The frilly one is a plantain, Plantago lanceolata. I think that's known as ribwort which is what MMeerkat suggested. That has more potential for taking over than fumitory. 

Yes please, I'd love some of the burnet seeds and I'll try and look after it better than last time 

I have more than enough of the plantain thank you. That's an example of how things behave under different regimes. There was some in our meadow. Then OH mowed a strip very close to use as a runway for a model plane. This was years ago and you can still see the plantain runway.

We've rather hijacked the cowslip thread. Sorry

8 inches is a bit small but sweet rocket has similar flowers to honesty, smells lovely and comes in white. Honesty also comes in white but the scent is less.

There have been a lot of these to ID on the forum in the last year. 

This adds weight to my theory that they are distributed by aliens
