last yera i bought a pack of pictorial meadows wildflower seed (we visit frequently, esp in summer, great day out for kids)  our soil is clay and we don't have anywhere really sunny enough for them, except near the front door in a large pot, would this work? when best to sow, do I need to put them in the fridge for a bit, and what potting mix should I use ( this is my 5 year olddaughter's project, she'll be so happy  if she can grow a mini meadow!)

ooh talking of roses, slight departure but I took a few rose cutting last year, some are now a year old, I've potted on which had been sharing a pot with a clematis ( just bunged it in when I pruned), it had a few roots and now it looks happy in it's new pot, how long should I be leaving them before I disturb them? I can't really fit any more roses in ( er... apart from the Rosa Mundi I bought yesterday from brilliant local rose nursery...)

Please help - fence disaster!

I'm really not very knowledgable at whether planting would let wind through... surely unless it was incredibly dense it would? I'd get planting!what aspect is it?
