I have a corner of my garden that is quite look over and I would like to plant a tree or a shrub to provide a bit of privacy and also maybe discourage intruders from climbing in. This plant would need to be able to withstand a north west light and some wind. Also it would live in a bed of 1 metre deep (but it stretches the length of the garden) in soil that is rocky and prone to clay. Please any suggestions?
I forgot to mention that the full height of the tree or shrub would have to be around 4-5 metres and the bed is elevated as a retaining wall. Thanks to everyone who have given suggestions so far!
