If you could have any plant / tree in your garden

I would have a beautiful Magnolia tree - don't have a big enough garden to have one but love them when they get really big.

mahonia likes a shady spot and in the winter you get the lovely yellow flowers and scent.  Can get tall, mine is about 5ft.

Don't give up Lilly3, I really thought mine would not do anything but they are just coming up, maybe it is too cold for them to come up yet.  Hopefully it will warm up soon.

I have James Galway which is a David Austin shrub/climber.  It grows to about 5ft which they say is suitable as a small climber.  It has a wonderful scent and has never suffered with any disease.

Hi Blairs  I planted them a couple of inches deep - is that deep enough or too deep?  I have been keeping them just damp and yes the tubers are solid.
