Thanks a million Greengage. I had thought of Photinia (there is loads of it about) and forsythia but you have loads of other ideas there.

I particularly like the look of viburnum plicatum mariesii ...

Hi everyone, short update!

Eventually bought a birch tree from Caragh Nurseries. Survived the winter and seems to be growing well.

Feel now I need some shrubbery around it.

It looks brilliant, I'm new to this site so it was amazing to see your garden come to life over the last few pages. What a lot of work you ahve put into it. You're really reaping the rewards now. And ...

Thanks everyone, I can't get the pic I have to upload but I think it lacks sufficient detail anyway given that it was taken from the car! I need to stop and get out and have a closer look.

Can anyone help me to identify this tree?

It's most distinctive feature are its bright yellow leaves.

The head is quite open and the leaves are complex, like an ash leaf but narrower and fussie ...

It has tons of buds, I sometimes notice a flower or two, then plenty of berries Sad maybe I have a mutant plant?!

Anyway, will try the recommended cross talking and a low nitrogen feed!

Thanks ...

I don't know much! BUT I think honey suckle go woody if you don't prune them. Not a big deal but if you want flowers and leaves all the way down, I THINK you are supposed to prune.

I'm sure there a ...

I planted a honey suckle at the front door in or around 2008. It has grown profusely, looks healthy and vigourous, produces lots of buds and appears to produce berries but I never or rarely see a flow ...

Thanks for all the replies. I AM a bit nervy of a beech so close to the house. I do love them though. The photograph above tells you why!

Hmm, not sure I appreciate the comments on how I choose to use my money. A weeping beech is very slow growing and I don't fancy waiting 10-15 y before it looks good! But each to their own.

Hi, I want to get a beautiful tree for my front garden. I am a little impatient so thinking of buying a semi mature tree and getting it planted. My budget would be about €500 - €600.
