Wow - thanks for all that information Gold1locks. It's been very usefull to me.
I'm a gardening novice (to a degree) and inherited a beautiful well stocked garden (mainly of an array of established shrubs - some of which I still havven't fathomed out what they are!) when I bought my home 2 years ago.
There was a beautiful elegant tree (don't know what type it was) of about 8 - 10ft high that was growing happily away at approximately 6ft away from the corner of my bungalow, but I "lost" it when we had the last lot of snowfall here. It's left a fairly big gap in the sounding area since I cut it down and was really looking for something to replace it with.
The gap where I'm looking to fill has a surrounding 8ft variegated laurel, an 6ft Red Robin, and an ornamental tree of some description (don't know what type that is either!!) Have you any suggestions what I could try growing there please? The area has sunlight in the morning but is shaded for the most part of the day - if that's any help??!!
As for your comment about my font - I wasn't aware that it shows up any different to yours as it all looks the same to me here..!! Hopefully I wasn't "shouting"..!!
