Its ok fairy, it might be tight, but ill squeeze it in somwhere! As for the hedge, yes i suppose I am but as a high rise hedge to restore my privacy and sanity after new neighbours cut everything down! Dya think it'll look ok?

I think I've finally decided on my tree dilemma.

I like the idea of purple leaved beech alternating with yellowy lime leaved beech (both columnar varieties). Will have to find out how far apart to space them.

What do you think?

I've seen them in Gc a few months ago but will wait for new stock to come in.

Not sure where to put the liriodendron and amelanchier I've already bought

Dove - just can't find the words !!!!!!!!! Best I can come up with is 'unbelievable'.

Not been around, missed why you can't drive, was it to do with you slipping/falling a while ago, there's some memory lurking somewhere...just outside your door ?

What's the star in your garden right now

Beautiful Artjak (just like your purple flower on star thread) but alas no such beauty here.

Just been down to look at the 'pumpkin patch' ( prompted by dove), err well, I have lots of leaves, and three pumpkins - almost the size of a plum - and not at all round - hmmm, me thinks they may price a bit tricky to carve if they dont get a wriggle on!!!
Always said I dont grow food, and strictly speaking its not food, just for Halloween.

Oh Dove, how frustrating! Hope all is well.

Verdun, just seen the biggest slug in FILs garden, peachy orange colour, the dog must have found it tasty as it had disappeared a few mins later (coat...get...ok)...
