Comments: We do like to co-ordinate our flowers with our cushions

They look very striking. I think we have a few planted over near the supermarket. Beautiful when the sunlight hits them in the autumn.

Love the hyacinths and do remember the beautiful cushions, perfect match. Those trees are stunning and a good start for the new place. Once the *** solicitors get off their backside.

If you fancy any apple trees another blogger has some for sale (organic, too) - http://www.englishhomestead.com/2017/01/apple-trees-for-sale.html

Hope the solicitor manages to extract his digit from his orifice soon!

Anglesey Abbey has a grove of silver birches, and might give you a lead on where to get some. You might have a problem getting them all the way to the Gorbals, though. Would it not be better to wait until you have moved?

Those silver birch in the bottom picture were taken at AA last week Temp (we went up to see what else they had in their winter garden now and I was very satisfied to learn that everything I'd thought of was there and not much more.

I would not want to pay the prices that the NT are charged... There are a couple of tree nurseries up in Northumberland, but we do need to get them in pronto. We currently have a huge pile of sturdy plants to transport northwards so a few more won't make much difference.
