What type of trees to plant a long a driveway

Posted: 24/01/2016 at 16:40

They could be mixed with other trees, such as Rowan, Liquid Amber and Amelanchier. But I think the birds, small mammals and insects would clear up any unwanted crab apples.

Fishing for sympathy!

Glad you are feeling better DD.

Our lunch guests have gone. The slow cooked lamb was yummy and our friends were chatty so we had a good time.

Enjoy Ireland and your family Liri, was going to ask where in Ireland but Wonky has said Galway.

Well done Wonky, hope they take notice.

That sounds lovely Topbird. I'd wondered about roses but roses need some care.

My Aztec Pearl is still under 3 feet after 8 years. It's still bushy. it's bed gets quite dry in summer.

It starts off quite small, well I suppose how big it is when bought would make a difference. I planted mine in 2007 and it grows a bit each year. It's not big like Choisya Ternata.

Sounds great, would love to go, but can't. I saw several of Monet's paintings when we were in New York last year. I live in France but I haven't been to Monet's garden yet, a long way.

Begonia tubers

I find Begonia plug plants grow very well, the Illumination series or the Dragon's Wing ones are great in pots. I buy them online.

That looks grand. Is it your house or are you the head gardener?

What about Lavender, Caryopteris, Abelia, Choisya Aztec Pearl or White Dazzler?

Chicky, my Mum lived in Battle and I often drove down Powdermill Lane, but I had no idea that hotel was there!
