Very attractive, nice to have mature trees in the garden....

yes i love them but they do make the garden shady, it faces east but we dont get the sun cos of the trees and the fact that they are on a hill above us making the trees even taller!
oh yes and now the leaves!

Yes they do have their drawbacks as well.

thank you ~ it has a lovely setting which helps enormously, soil is lovely and easy to dig ~ lots of leaves must help. i think my job is to enhance what is there ~ its a challenge ~ nature is very good all on its own!

Location and nice neighbours have a lot to do with whether gardening is easy or stressful ...

Very nice! Beautiful indeed! Love the pinkish leaves on the copper beech and small shrubs (maybe pieris?). I bought a pieris last year and unfortunately it died probably because I didn't water it enough. Shame!

22 Feb, 2011

 

yes several pierris ~ they like it here; also have a couple of camelia and azalea

22 Feb, 2011

 

Wonderful, that's the dream acidic garden!

22 Feb, 2011

22 Feb, 2011

Delightful garden. Adore copper beeches, very envious, but can see why they might be a mixed blessing.

10 Jul, 2012

 

i love the copper beech its the oaks behind the fence which i love but their leaves seem to be everywhere forever!!
its only a little garden rose, but its enough for me!!
