    That’s a Horse chestnut or conker tree. Aesculus hippocastanum

    I am thinking of leaving it until winter dormancy and transferring it, is there any kind of place you may know of that would take such a thing? It would be such a shame to kill it, in fact it's not something we would consider. It is 7 foot tall
  • These are some other common ones in the garden too, if anybody knows what they are and if they are suitable for a wild native hedge. Really appreciate the help.

    Clear pics would be most helpful.

    1. Cotoneaster
    2. Betula...silver birch
    3.
    4. Rosa.
    5. Rosa.
    6. Sorbus..a rowan tree.

    If you have more queries please can you start a new thread for the next 3/4.

    Thank you so much, I have always been a keen gardener but realised quickly, upon tackling a bigger garden, that my knowledge is very limited! Your help is much appreciated
