Plant some low shrubs round the outside to break the wind and give you some colour.

Percy I do agree what you say but at this time when things are so tight money does come into it. Example Morrison's on Sat night i got 6 strong fuchsia plugs for £2 at our local Doobbies GC they where a £1 each plug and not any better looking may i say. Also at Morrison's a Salix Caprea Kilmarnock £8 at Dobbies £20 same label on it am a member of Dobbies garden club and buy most of my stuff there but i still watch my pennies and love a bargain.
