It's a shame they are being ripped out as trees give some structure to a garden. They are also easy-upkeep.

Sometimes if you go to a garden centre they will do you a good deal on plants suitable for the tables if you buy lots.

The first step would have been to dig around the trees to sever the roots, at least a couple of feet from the trunks. Then they can be lifted more easily. This should be done, perhaps a season before you want to move them.

I would look into it quite carefully; it might be cheaper to buy those varieties locally rather than transporting them.

Sweet peas are a must! The smelly kind.

Good advice, Mark. Even well-seasoned hardwood will produce tar, though.

Good News for Mike

Wonderful news, Mike. You must be so relieved.

The only advice you need to give to anybody that you give wood to must sweep their chimney regularly. Softwoods are not as greatly admired for giving heat as hardwoods are, but if they are cheap enough or free, that's a different matter.

If you stack the wood correctly it will dry out well. Remember to cut the wood in lengths to suit your woodburner. You will save yourself so much work if the logs are the correct length.

If you don't intend to use the shreddings in the garden, what do you intend to do with them? Being acidic can be useful, round acid-loving plants, and for paths, perhaps.

If it moves quickly it is usually a goodie. If it moves slowly it is usually a baddie.
