Bubbles on surface of pond?

I'll just have to imagine

Beech chippings

It probably depends on what you're chipping and what the plants are. Most of mine goes through the shredder and gets put straight on the garden around plants but not tiny plants. Tiny ones would probably be OK if the blackbirds stopped kicking it around. 

Very little of my shreddings comes from conifers which could be where the acid and resin comes from.

Soil is full of life normally.Worms pull leaves etc down from the surface and create more humus and it all gets churned round. Insects come and go. It all stops when you put a layer of weed membrane in

The fancy Digitalis purpurea types will seed back to normal eventually, some types quicker than others.

I think you'd be OK if you don't let them develop into big trees. I don't think they make enormous trees do they?  There are weeping willows not far from our tank, less than 30 feet and no problems so far. The trees are probably 60+ years old same as the house, they've been pollarded from time to time but they're big.

The coloured stemmed dogwoods are OK in wet soil. How far away is the septic tank? Willows won't have far reaching roots if you grow them as a coppiced hedge, the top balances the bottom.

Alder will grow in wet (same treatment) and I think hazel, though I haven't grown it wet

Righto, it will seed before autumn and I'd sow it fresh. Fresh is always better, ask the plant. 

Is there anything else I've mentioned that you'd like?

PM me your address, I find making an envelope and writing the name of the required seed on it is the best way for me to remember.
