Trees for small gardens: Fagus sylvatica Atropurpurea Group, copper beech, is a large tree, but it can be pleached to provide a screen. Tie in young stems to form a framework, then trim annually. Photo by Sarah Cuttle.

I like the tall trunks for a 'hedge' to soften along the front fence. I don't like the purple/red colour of the trees. And I like the idea of lower layers of plants

more dark walls in the garden making plants pop out - drawing the eye from ugly buildings in the distance

Garden inspiration/tuininspiratie -

Love this. Hanging flowers in the garden and a bench to admire them. White wisteria - is it even better than the purple?

Would love to cover sides of house and use for storage and gardening ect. We've moved the old table here and are bringing our plants & pots near the potting shed. We have to get things organized for winter.
