Small tree suggestions for small Coastal back garden.

Posted: 08/11/2013 at 15:09

It has to be tallish to clear the top of the fence, so a standard Tamarisk, a Malus and Mountain Ash may fit the bill. I hadn't thought of Sea Buckthorn and love the sound of the edible berries. Thanks everyone.

Tamarisk is very popular in our area. I had been considering this too. I know it would stand up to our Coastal winds!  Thanks very much.

Thankyou hugely for these suggestions. I had toyed with a mountain ash and a malus, so I'm now much more confident about going forward! I'll look forward to finding these. Thanks so much.

We look out on to the fencing at the back of our garden. We would love to have something softer and greener to look on to.We also need to block the view of roof tops in the distance. The width of the garden is 30 ish foot, but the length from the house is only 20 odd feet. The sea winds sometimes burn the leaves on our shrubs so I need something resilient but not too big. . . . I would love something with autumn colour.   Any suggestions? 

Box Blight

I have heard that regular feeding can support healthy growth with box trees- and strengthen them up - even those damaged by blight. Is this so?

Problem is the severe salty winds during winter months.
