I NEED A TREE!!!
I'm going slightly mental here. My neighbour cut down the beautiful cherry tree in his front garden and I know this is going to sound really selfish and totally childish but I loved that tree! It was so beautiful all year round. And I cried when it was being cut down??!!?? I've NEVER cried over a tree before. I have a little plot out the front 8 x 2 feet by 6 x 7 feet that has an overgrown rosemary in it and it gets full sun in the summer. I wanted to maybe remove the rosemary and plant a tree that grows to be tall, around 20ft? and that is quite broad at the top so that it offers up some shade from the sun which is beautiful, but I have to close my blind to be able to sit in that room. I have tried Google etc but I'm just confused now. I was thinking of another fruit tree of some sort? The trunk musn't be too thick when fully grow to avoid coming into contact with the wall and also my other neighbours will be concerned about the roots etc. All of our gardens are open, without fences so we do cut each others grass etc etc (no rota or anything we just cut the grass as and when needed so nice neighbours. I'm sorry about my inane blitherings but hope someone can help? Thank you so much. Marian.
