I planted some at the foot of a north-facing wall  - they were great for about 8 months, but didn't survive the very wet/cold/snowy winter a couple of years ago.

I think it's beautiful as it is  

One of the wonderful characteristics of some magnolias is the asymmetry of their growth - that's why they look so wonderful in Japanese gardens and paintings where asymmetry is prized. 

If you cut it back you run the danger of it looking like a frilly loo brush.

I'd enjoy it as it is and accentuate the asymmetry and the Japanese style of the garden - perfect with the architecture of your house

I lived in High Suffolk - heavy clay with large flints - often large flints were removed from the fields and stacked in corners to avoid damaging the plough etc - they were great 'anvils'. 

I was going to say, what you posted about peanuts is interesting - I'd always thought that maybe bluetits etc were clever enough to know what they were doing, but the 'don't feed whole peanuts in the spring' thing has always been said with such authority by the 'experts' that I've happily passed it on.  Perhaps from now on I'll assume the bluetits know best what to feed their children - they've survived this long 

Advice on bulbs, please

That's why picking them and bringing them inside is a good idea - less chance for the bees to cross-pollinate them

Herons are my favourite bird -  I used to live near a heronry in Suffolk when I was a child.  Now we're in Norfolk we live near to the marshes so we see them quite often, but as ours is a wildlife pond with no fish we've not had a visitor ... yet .

I know fish can be lovely in a pond, but I think I'd rather have the heron
