We went to Malvern last year and really enjoyed it after a few years of Tatton. I think it's best to swap around a bit, because they seem a bit samey year after year, and Tatton 2011 did seem to be suffering from the recession - show gardens a bit limited. Get there early and take a picnic. Friends/customers who have been to Chelsea swore they would never go again. Us provincials don't like dense crowds, though.

Maybe you could solve the problem by pollarding the tree to whatever height would suit the site - anything from perhaps 2 to 5 ft and let it grow into a multi-stemmed tree. Stake it well and this way you might avoid the effects of the wind until it develops a really strong root system.

I think you'll find that pesticide is a catch-all word that covers any specific treatments, such as insecticides, herbicides, fungicides, etc.

By the way, can you tell me how to stop my computer writing in this minuscule font? 

What to grow on a one acre site?

Perhaps try growing houses; green belts are not as safe from development as they were a couple of years ago, and especially after today's Budget.
