Hi, Id advise against trees until youve thought out a plan for your garden, trees shade your garden and they are very thirsty and the roots travel. If you want privacy maybe you could try trellis with clematis or maybe honeysuckle to climb it. Once youve had time to work out your plan which will happen as I think a garden evolves in time you could maybe think of fruit trees on dwarf root stock. These are my ideas as youve not actually said how big your garden is, its difficult to say maybe you have the room for trees which would be well away from the house and any flower borders you maybe thinking of

Whats wrong with my aubrieta ?

my mother told me aubretia dont like their heart wet. Which makes sense they like nothing better than being in a wall or as my neighbour has them in a raised gravel bed, which all say free drainage

I'm going to give up on  launching snails now, I had no idea they had a homing instinct!! I'll put them in the wheelie bin with "a try finding your way back now!!!"

Is everyone else's plants very late this year?

I'm in the north of Scotland and unusually my garden is ahead . My lupins are amazing this year, my scabious will be flowering by next week, mecanopsis, geum all flowering. We haven't had bad frosts for weeks nor snow which is not unheard of in June too!!

Ive not been successful with germination. I love them as a plant they are in my top ten. What I decided to do this year as I wanted more colours was to buy a collection of 12 mixed plants, they do self seed freely so when they do I was going to llift the seedlngs to bring them on.
