Only if you let the ivy completely cover the hazel so no leaves can be seen. Ivy isn't parasitic and the aerial roots only cling to the tree, they don't feed from it.
I've got some of these, they last years even with my rough terrain
and some insulated Derris for when it's really wet under foot.
Don't despair Firecracker. Most of us had to work up to a good winter garden.
Are there any with true leaves yet?
It might be chickweed but also resembles the one with blue flowers, bird's eye?
B-L's birches sound good to me, natural looking but with the extra edge of very white bark.
Not evergreen though which Elena wanted. I wouldn't have evergreen in that situation. You can't completely block a view except with something like leylandii which is uglier than the building. You need something in the foreground to draw your eye away from the thing behind your trees
A potentially lovely rural scene. If you're in the UK I'd avoid anything obviously alien like eucalyptus. They can be lovely trees but I'd use something more in keeping with the landscape.
not with cuttings Tetley
I think it's how I look after them, (or don't look after them). I know where to cut and all that stuff.
When you like. Best when the leaves are off though, they're very easy, even I can do them.
They're fun in a glass of water in the kitchen, you can watch the roots developing.
Otherwise stick a piece in the ground
freezing fog here as well but half a laurel tree, felled yesterday, required chopping and shredding. So we did it. Nasty
But job done
Oh no Verdun, that's awful news.
