Confused about trees!
Gardening is all new to me and I want to put a small tree in my front garden but am not sure what to buy can anyone give some advice? The tree must not grow taller than 3/4 metres and must have flowers or colour of some sort. My garden is west facing so can be windy at times and the soil is quite dry and stoney. I was thinking of a japanese maple, flowering crab tree (japanese), pea tree (really hard to get hold of I think) or a Hawthorn. Would these be any good? Any advice is welcome.
