More good advice - thank you nutcutlet for taking time to help a poor novice out! That link about the wildflowers waas really useful too, picked up lots of tips.
Thanks for the warning about verbena - it must be a tricky one to get right. All I can do is try, and if it doesn't work out this year I'll try again next year.
So, I'll leave the teazel sowing until Springtime along with some non-hardy wildflower mixes.
I'm going to sow my foxglove seeds in a propagator in the next few days. Is seeding compost essential - I have potting-on compost only. It isn't cheap and I'm on a super-tight budget, so I hope it will work the same.
I'm also attempting to take some lavender cuttings from the non-flowering shoots, following Monty Don's step-by-step guide.
Wish me luck!
