Hi, Please can anyone recommend good types of folding saw (I want 1 large & 1 small) or even through experience ones to avoid. Ideally I would like 'last a lifetime' tools. Thanks.

Shady spot

Hi, I've got some wasted space behind my garage. It's big enough for a 8x6' raised bed, it's shady but not pitch black. Can anyone help with planting ideas please?

Thank you Rose,
So not really hardy then? I have a sheltered spot for it - not worth risking it in your opinion?

Nutcutlet, you may be onto something. The variety sold by duchy of Cornwall are not what I would call hardy.

Thanks Blairs,
Duchy site only has http://www.duchyofcornwallnursery.co.uk/plants-and-flowers/shrubs/shrubs/schefflera-rhododendrifolia/c-psh-scheff/
I know even less about that variety- but price isn't extortionate.

I've just been catching up on gardeners world & I saw a Schefflera Impressa (hardy umbrella tree). I like the look of this & wonder if anybody has any experience of them. I just did a quick search & can't find any for sale online , so I'm assuming that means it'll cost an arm & a leg?
