If you could have any plant / tree in your garden

Regardless of your location and garden conditions if you could have anything in your garden what would you have?

I would love a Ginkgo biloba tree. I know they will grow in pots but I'd love a mature one.

    This might sound daft but - an entire, formal Italianate garden complete with avenues, vistas, cypresses, statues, fountains and box and yew hedging.

    Don't ask for much do I...imageimage

    It's a place where beautiful isn't enough of a word....

    I'd love a Picea breweriana otherwise known as brewers spruce.  It has a lovely droopy habit. There are some at Chatsworth near the giant redwoods. All I need is a few hundred acres to set it off. 

    Shame I didn't win the euromillions last night , but I can always dream.image
