Thanks Nut again. It's more the challange than getting bushes for nothing. Lots of work in the garden still to do but apart from the garlic not much planting.
Have scavanged trees from various locations before and grew Ash from seed.
Sowed 5 Sychamores about 18 years ago at the bottom of the garden from seedlings that grew in the then gravel yard. Sowed 6 conkers on my son's 6th birthday(1997) 3 have survived an produced a few conkers last year.
Similar here with Sychamore. they grow in the cracks in concrete yard, in the daffodil beds, under the hedges, in the guttering on the house and just about everywhere you can imagine. Ash also but not as much. There are a few hawthorn saplings up the lane but they would number less than 20 and are very stunted. Have Ash saplings 3 foot high to sow and no sign of Chalara TG.
