One of the things our garden is lacking is cover. Apart from an unidentified bush (which has pink flowers on it at the moment), and a couple of straggly buddleias, there isn't anything much. I'm sure we'd have more birds in the garden if there was a decent hedge, as all we have is fencing.
This is the reason why I've planted some willows at the back. They were kindly donated by a friend who has a garden full of them (it's like a tree nursery) so I just shoved them in the ground and we're hoping for the best.
As you can see from the photo, they haven't died yet, so fingers crossed a few will make it and grow into proper trees.
