I'm redesigning a courtyard and have a circular bed in the middle, about 2.5m wide. The bed is sitting on a hardcore base and so only soil available to plant is from raised bed. I'm wanting to plant something that makes a statement but don't know much about plants as am just starting out on gardening front! It is a sunny position that is sheltered.

Any suggestions or advice greatly received!

Thanks.

A fig tree produces most fruit when it's roots are constricted and if it's sunny as well you might get a bumper crop! I like the leaves as it can look very architectural. Worth considering anyway .....

Thanks very much Margot for the advice. We used to have a fig tree in that courtyard so it may be a good idea to put one back!
