    As you can see tight for space I love my little garden . I think a tree would bring the birds in as of yet had no success with birds I love to watch birds feeding 😊

    A birch will be way too big for your lovely garden    .... we found a crab apple attracted lots of birds to our garden ... long tailed tits loved it in the winter especially.

    garden looks lovelly, yes, not a Birch too big, have a chat with local nurseries/garden centres see what they can suggest for a pot, course there are so many to chose from, small trees,shrubs, what about an acer, very pretty all year round colour.

    Thanks Dovefromabove and Nanny Beach for your help and advice. I will have a chat with a couple of local nurseries but I have to be careful what I get as my dogs will probably devour anything like fruit that drops from it.
