Thanks verd, can't wait for delivery tomorrow. Not sure the trees I have chosen will associate well together but I'll have a play around! They are for behind the kids area so no room for further planting....yet!!!

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!
