Large Formal Plants

I would go for yew - there's nothing more formal and impressive.

My second choice would be one of the dark-leaved hollies - there are some with leaves that are a very dark blue/green.

Thank you Lantana - he's given us some worries in the past so now he does try to let us know that he's ok.  

Those poor parents - what they're going through doesn't bear thinking about. 

One of the good guys

That's good to know SV.  I've always heard good things of Hayloft - I'm glad they're living up to their reputation.

It could well provide homes for wildlife too - little bugs, reptiles etc - brilliant!

Terrible Drainage!

The strip filled with gravel sounds like a French Drain - the gravel is supposed to be there.

Thank you  Kitty - he's a grown man who has travelled all over the world, but we still worry, don't we?

I do feel for the families of the French students ... I can't imagine what they're going through.

They've now announced two people dead; one a police officer 

Staff at Immediate Media GW magazine and their families may well live in or travel through the area affected by all this.  Hope all are ok.

Growing Veg year on year

The growing carrots from the tops thing works as an amusement for children in a saucer of water on the kitchen windowsill - but it's not a successful way to grow carrots in the garden. 

Fruit bushes of course, will continue to fruit year after year if looked after - so you might like to consider growing some fruit?
