Watch out Dove, when the peregrines have got a taste for pigeons they may come after you. Sorry about the slightly sceptical suggestion - I frequently hear about very unlikely bird sightings from people who are inclined to believe in the unusual rather than the obvious. So, no intention to doubt your skills

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.

Unstable young birch tree

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.
