Just lost a long post! Was embarrassing anyway - changed mind on trees, now having a eucalyptus niphophila ( coincidence woody!) instead of cotoneaster.
Have a good day.

No undergardener for me today!

GC trip and trees bought, nothing like I'd planned but just ones I like , the planting 'scheme' will just have to fall into place

Shredded all last years buddleia and laurel and dismantled the compost bin ready to sell.

supposedly tidied and chopped but doesn't look any different.

Nice walk in the park and to the playground with son

Steak n chips for tea

trees arrive tomorrow when im at work, wont get my hands on them til tues pm.

Bamboo or tree screening? Suitable bamboos?

Well, my visit to GC didn't go as planned!

The variety of fagus I wanted doesn't keep it's leaves over winter so wont give a better screen than others 'on the list'.

Instead I chose a cotoneaster as its evergreen and fits the purpose.

So now my plan had comp[lately changed and I decided to stop 'thinking' and go with my heart

I have wanted a liquidambar for ages so I now have 'Lane Roberts' on its way tomorrow.

I have kept seeing an Acer drumondii in local gardens so went for that as well!

Not the plan I had, don't fit purpose but love em!

Have a good sleep Stacey, lovely to be able to see the garden when you wake. Sending you lots of extra fighting spirit, so sorry your illness is back. I'll send you some extra sleep and relaxation too to speed up that recovery. Make time to remain happy and positive through this sh#t time, and see you soon on the forum

ideas of what to plant to (quickly) screen a school building

If its just the one tree you want to replace, try your local (large) garden centre. Many have a stock of fairly tall trees for a reasonable price. They will need time to fill out but a good starting point before spending s fortune perhaps.

Turned into a lovely day here. Evening plans changed so if I hadn't. been in bath by time I knew. I could have spent soooo much more time in garden.
Lovely yvie having littley in your room, wish id allowed it more with my son, even now. Ah memories.
Hope all aches n pains disappear soon for everyone.

Friend came round later tonight, said thanks for a plant i gave her. Couldn't remember at first but its one that was boken as her n son played in summer so gave her the 'cutting'. Its one of my favourites - salvia hot lips, she's thrilled with it.
