Silver Birch grow very big and don't look good or respond well to pruning.  What about Rowan, comes in different berry colours now and is has quite airy foliage and looks good all year.  It will also feed the birds, copes well on clay and you can prune them without making it look a mess.

My water butts both have lids on but the water smells like rotten eggs, could I try the citronella oil in them Napo?

I think it's called stock fencing Lyn.  Is it the one with big square holes you see on farms?

It hadn't occurred to me to use variegated foliage in my white border as I'm not usually that keen but I might give it a go with some hostas perhaps.
