HI Gerry, just bought a new house in Kilcoole. Back garden is northfacing and I have built a shed & open roofed area across back wall. garden is small but slopes towards house. What would be the best design & plants for this garden? I do have 2 stella cherry trees, 1 Hazelnut tree, hydranga x 2 and a number of others, what would be the best locations for these?
The hazelnut can be placed ina corner where some its bulk can over hang the space outside the walls. I can also be pruned, or coppiced, to keep it manageable. The hydrangeas can also be thinned out each year after the firs few years to keep them small and they cna be planted in relativley shady places.
