Regarding the hot climate question…. didn't I read somewhere that they are native to Sicily?

True...discovered by a Sicilian monk, but the average temperatures are similar to here in the UK.

Hello, Katy, welcome to the forum.

Tree for small front garden?

Not sure if it appeals, but it does meet your height requirements.....how about a Kilmarnock Willow?

Just showed my OH that pic David, I think he is a tad envious 

 

Obviously a man of taste, OL.

Glad there has been messages of support for Rachel here.....she is truly a lovely lady who  does know her stuff.

HELLO FORKERS!

A little while ago I posted here praising Stafford Hospital's care of my sister in her final days.......in view of recent media coverage of poor/horrific care of patients in care homes I would just like to relate my sister's care in her care home.

In her care home she was cared for extremely well and was happy and contented at all times. Two of her carers attended her funeral and were in tears along with close relatives.

I suppose I just wanted to say that whilst not being newsworthy, there is a lot of very good people out there.

But David, wasn't it you who enlarged the bird and re-posted it?

I asked for approval for taking the liberty of changing someone else's photo, in the absence of that approval I thought it appropriate to remove it.

Btw, I didn't enlarge it.

I think Rachel seems very warm and natural, not 'posh' at all.  In fact, all the presenters are good in their own way and I do like to see beautiful gardens, just need an hour which includes hands on gardening too.

 

I've met Rachel and can say she is 'very warm and natural' and easy to talk to. Also (contrary to some beliefs) she is a well qualified horticulturist.
