Oh. well, I usually plant perennials in 3's and it works for me, perhaps I am just a terrible gardener.

Verdun, dot planting is fine if you have large specimens, however many people plant very small plants, which does tend to look very dotty, until they have filled out.

This is why planting in 3s and 5s etc. is recommended.

Sausage sandwich, that is true love.

Possibly the greatest meal on the planet, brown sauce I trust.

I have foxes so I use Growmore in Spring and again in early Summer.

Dahlias, Cannas and other heavy feeders , get regular Tomato feed during the Summer

I think reliable moisture might be the key.

Which tree??

It is not the shade that is the problem, it is the space. An Acer would outgrow that space, within a few years.

Recomendations please!

I don't think you can make beds without any drainage. Essentially what you will end up with is like a pot without drainage holes.

You will need to find some way of breaking up the concrete base.

Global warming

There is good evidence from a number the major UK. gardens, that Spring [as judged by flowers and tree leaves appearing ] has got progressively earlier, over at least the last 150 years.

I have no wish to start an argument, but the so called claims for global warming have long ago been proved to be TRUE.

The only thing that is not clear, is how much of this warming is caused by us..

Which tree??

Not sure there is room for a tree in that space, unless you get something like a fastigiated Yew or, an Amagowna Cherry.
