Despite the unbelievably wet ground, we were able to move a Magnolia grandiflora, a Pinus strobus minima and even some Bergenias - not to mention 2 very heavy statues known as Ten Ton Thumbelina and Hefty Hetty!! Instead of standing shyly underneath the trees by the laurel hedge, these two members of Chris's extensive harem now stand centre stage! They've moved just a few yards to either side of Kay's arbour.
I've had another idea of planting a short but formal avenue of bare root Yews either side of the path. They can be clipped to shape small tear drops and would mean we had some winter structure. Now is the perfect time for bareroot planting also, pot grown trees are much more expensive!
From July to February - how different these 2 photos look
