If I had the space, a proper big oak tree and a majestic cedar.
If I had acidic soil, lovely papery, silky blue and red meconopsis poppies and then I could also grow magnolias, rhodos, azaleas and pieris.
However, I'm blessed with very fertile, decent alkaline loam with a some clay and can grow all sorts of things that love that as long as they can stand the long, cold, exposed winters. I just wish the weeds didn't know about my soil..
