As  I plant out last year's babies I'm potting on a few of each.

I also have a few shrubby things.

Cut to just above a pair of leaves, precise amounts not important, I'd stay in the new green wood though, not the brown. Going into the brown has not worked well for me. Do the sides as well as the top.

I'd snip out the growing tips of all the branches, that will thicken it up. I've got quite a bit of laurel and the best and thickest are the ones I've treated this way.

The ones I cut back hard died back more

Thanks Bob,  might leave them another week. I have a second lot waiting to go in but don't want to spoil my chances with the first lot.

How long are you going to leave your seeds in the fridge Bob. Mine are just going into their third week and I might take them out after the weekend. Do you think that's too soon?

Sycamore seedlings

Poplars don't make babies here either Mike, I wonder if they're all one sex or hybrids or something. I have 2 of those that have red catkins anytime now and then the leaves a lot later. Rarely get willow seedlings either. 

But Norway maple, (now gone), ash and field maple would create a forest here in no time,
