Ive planted a few of these seeds in pots to start them off, but im looking for tips on how to get the best growth from them. I have 5 already started and another 20 seeds to sow, in the packet. I would ideally love a hedge of these against my back garden wall, which gets full sun from morning to evening. I have some of the nettle brew, in a tub(the first time ive done this) would it be usefull for these.

I planted 13 of these in a row a few years ago, and they grow to 6ft but, I had them in my fronth garden and someone chopped the heads off them, one night.

Any tips for me, I would be very greatfull, at the moment they are only seedlings.
