Apricot tree ( smallish)

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 new to the forum and looking for design ideas

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.

Could the handle bars at the front be designed to fold down so you could reach over the front if you needed to?

Would be good to have carry trays either side to take the hand tools, seeds etc that you want to use. Still think three wheels not four. In a garden you need as narrow as possible to access all areas.and caterpillar tracks sounds great!

Could it be designed as a three wheeler like modern buggies? Seems more manoeuvrable than a 4 wheeler.
