Greengage very similiar to plum and can be used in the same way. I think they taste better but maybe thats just me.

Hi Alan  Yes can be fanned. You need a pretty sheltered position but not South facing better east or North, the reason being the blossom comes early and may get hit by frost if South. Free draining soil too. 

What about a plum to add to your collection. Pretty unfussy and can be wall trained too. Better still a greengage. Not many people seem to grow them anymore and they are delicious.

Should my honeysuckle look like this

Definitely not honeysuckle. Looks like wild tree to me too. Possibly damson

Hi coys looks like you've made a great start.

Do you have any preference on style, colour, form? Would you say a traditional look, cottagey or more modern? 

Give a few pointers on what you like and I am sure you will have suggestions flying at you!

No idea. You could try posting it on Gardenbuddies. The forum is mainly Americans they would know.
