Ooh, lots of food for thought there Zoomer - thank you!  Just the sort of info I needed.

Peter, I could do all those things you suggested if I had more time!  But I was hoping for some quicker pointers!

Zoomer, thank you for providing me with a great one!    I didn't know about Greenfingers.com, but the site looks really promising.

Hello DD - nice to know someone else has had the same problem as me!

Dove, for me the standard was ideal, as I have placed it in front of a gap above the boundary fence to provide screening from the neighbours' chidrens' play equipment.

No nut, your advice is too valuable for that

Yes Dove, it is.  Will remove suckers forthwith.  Do you know how long any cuttings take to grow, and would they need to be grafted to something else to get the lollipop shape?

Ha ha nut!  Yes it is - hadn't thought of that!

I have this pretty little willow tree.  It's about 5' high and has some leafy stems growing from near the base.  I wondered if these could be used for propagation, and if so, how?  How fast a grower is it?  I've only had mine four months.

Thanks again Heather.  I have also put up a new post that doesn't include the word 'polycarbonate', but so far no reaction!
