Inspiration Required, small tree suggestions & wildlife encouragement
Hi, I currently have a small to medium size garden which is bare with just grass and a patio. I wish to completely renovate the garden and turn it into an attractive oasis for our family as well as the wildlife.
I would like to introduce 1 or 2 small trees that wont take over the garden, height isn't too much of a problem but I don't want too much spread. I love trees that blossom, not fussed if it has fruit on it or not, but would like some year round interest so it doesn't look awful during the autumn/winter months. Any thoughts?
Also, I wish to encourage butterflies, birds & bees to the garden. I have a huge bird feeder which is very well used currently by all nature of birds but want to do more with planting for them and other wildlife. Any ideas? Throw them my way if so as the blank canvas albeit exciting is also quite daunting for a novice gardener!
