I think it would be wise to dump the willow, whichever one it is. It won't really make a hedge in the usual sense of the word.
Lovely, thanks Victoria. None of my aconitums are flowering yet, seeds are a long way down the line. Is there anything you're looking for? Did you see my list of a few days ago?
Stick with the seed swap Dove
I will Victoria
But not always Dove
Do you think not Salix or just not S. caprea?
I think that's a willow, possibly Salix caprea
Shade will be fine for germination Jo and young plants can get fried in full sun.
bright but not in the sun if you have such a place
That's Himalayan balsam, seeds like mad.
They do well in the sun and with dry soil. Very good in gravel. It will die back in winter and all the dead can be cut off. I don't have 'Blue Hobbit' but never water any eryngium and they do fine.
