    The yellow flowered one is a Hypericum.(rose of sharon) More of a shrub than hedging material.

    Hypericum ... possibly H. Hidcote

    Gardening in Central Norfolk on improved gritty moraine over chalk ... free-draining.

    oh yes, thankyou so much, (🤔 St John’s Wort), so kind if you to respond so quickly 🤗, “thankyou” Fidgetbones & Dovefromabove :  actually ours is a tall boundary hedge with our neighbour - & 2metres tall !!!! Big grower too, sadly have had to cut it back on our side today - we are busy planting a new “rose garden” along the front driveway path.
    (We’ve had to replace the 12 year old “woody” lavender which formerly lined this path)  
    Our soil is v clay here - any tips in what we can add to the soil before planting new roses, & how far apart to space them? 
    Any & all tips will be greatly appreciated. 🙏 thanks guys 🤔😊

    Bone meal is good for roses, they are generally given a feed once a year. Wash your hands after using it as a precaution, it can carry disease. Scatter some in the hole when planting. Roses can do well in clay soil. I live a mile from the Garden of the Rose and its clay there
