Thymus silver Posie. Lovely taller thyme with pinky silver foliage and pink flowers. The very best of the thymes. Geranium black beauty ....dark purple/black foliage and bright blue flowers on a compact stunning plant. Contrasts beautifully with the silver thyme.
Osteospermum tresco Purple is fairly hardy and flowers non stop.
Lavender Munstead. Try santolina lemon fizz.....a bright yellow scented mound

B & Q ...amongst others....sell sweet pea plants fairly cheaply. That's what I would do. Sounds like seed rotted

David, did you water in after planting? How much?
It could just be plants need settling in
Taxus can sometimes look poorly after planting and then pick up.
Inform your suppliers though ASAP in case you need replacements.
Your top soil? Reputable supplier? Inform them too and ask questions

Top dress. Feed, mow. Used to be so fastidious .....raking, spiking, hand pulling of couch grass, fine grass seed only, mixed compost and sieved top soil twice a year, watering, regular feeding. And best cylinder mower. Then I woke up. So time consuming; so obsessional. Oh yes, used lute too.
I like a nice lawn....and people say its nice....but as long as its green, weed free, level and soft to walk on I'm happy.
So Brum It's reasonably good.
I'm more of a perfectionist with my plants though
