Any suggestions for a small tree for a border?
Just removed all plants from an island bed to rid myself of bindweed and couch grass. Now starting to re-plan the border and I'd like a feature plant in the middle - ideally 8ft to 10ft tall in time but not with too much width as I like to grow perennials in the bed. Its next to my tiny pond but I don't mind collecting leaves if its deciduous. Would like some flowers or perhaps some attractive bark/foilage. Has anyone got any suggestions from their own garden or what works or what to avoid? Many thanks
