Magnolia Quandary

Do not be tempted to 'tidy' up the magnolia further. They don't react well to pruning.

Do not contemplate a brick wall. Very expensive. Plants are a good filter.

The best way to prevent this happening is to start the sets off in modules. As soon as the sets have sturdy shoots and good roots the birds will leave them alone when you plant them out.

For now, cover the sets with fleece until they are anchored in the soil.

There are many varieties. Some late, some early.

Problem Trees

I would counsel against putting any tree in a lawn. Makes mowing difficult. Put it to one side.

Whats best for screening a warehouse - upto 5-6m. Please see images.

I get the impression that the photos were taken from an upstairs window. At ground level the warehouse wall will not loom so large. The main view will be of your own fencing. Deal with that rather than the warehouse wall.

I agree with everybody else. Bring the eye into the garden rather than drawing it upwards and outwards.

Peas because they can eat them. Pick the sunniest plot you can. You don't say how old your son is, but children just love watering so get him a little watering can too.

You will need to water it. And then water it again. And then water it again. They are very shallow rooting.

Let us know what the germination rate is. I find T&M rather poor.

Got it in one. My compost heap contains so many different things that no one thing predominates.
