WHICH TREES WOULD GOYERS RECOMMEND FOR SMALL SPACES?
Morning all....I have at last had my massive sitka spruce and ivy clad/dead rowan trees removed from where they were doing their best to knock down the boundary wall and get their roots back into the drains! Being "preserved trees" I am obliged to replace with more manageable varieties...no problem as I hate the "exposure" I now have and adore my trees.
Different sorbus of course would fill the BIG gap but have any of you any better suggestions to put forward - bearing in mind that it can be a windy site with east to west (and vice versa!!) prevailing cross winds.
Something colourful and even evergreen - if you get my drift and berried preferably for the bird-life which used to punish the old rowan - before the ivy smothered and killed it off!
Any suggestions would be very welcome - remembering that I am on the chilly salt-laden coast of North East Bonnie Scotland!
I am off to the garden centres this morning to browse...but look forward to your "offerings" - please and thank you!
