Hello. I am planning an overhaul of my garden which is NNE facing, I want to plant a woodland garden. The garden is 140 feet long and 30 feet across and the soil is clay but has been improved over the last 10 to 15 years.
I want some small trees which I plan to plant in about two thirds of the garden but need to consider high winds and neighbours.
I love birch, hazel and holly but fear most species seem to grow a bit too tall. Even when looking at "dwarf" varieties I am faced with wide, tall trees.
