Hi, complete novice here hoping for advise. We have a smallish suburban garden that is overlooked at the back, and our gardener has suggested planting three silver birches in a row to help screen and add a bit of interest and height to the garden.
I do love silver birches and think they are beautiful in all seasons, but worry that they will grow too tall and will shade the garden too much in summer. Will they dwarf everything else in the garden? Are they hard to keep to a manageable size? The garden faces SE and I'm afraid I have no clue on soil types etc.
Any guidance gratefully accepted, thanks!
