Alan is that chocolate vine as in Akebia quinata? I can't tell from the photo.

LOTS of leaves, not a lot of flowers and swamps everything in my experience

The trick is  wide pots, gritty compost, grit on top. Sprinkle the seeds on top of that. It imitates a gravel path and works well for small seeds.

Larger seeds won't fall though the grit so they have to be sown before the grit goes on

Advice for a newbie, please ...

Hi Mickledore

I don't think I'd plant out anything from a polytunnel at this end of the year, 

 

Watering in Viburnum tinus 'Gwenillian'

A good watering in, then back off a bit. When the rains start for autumn you needn't water again till spring.

You need to loosen the roots a bit before planting if it's got pot bound, it makes it easier for them to get established.
