Live in a 60's semi withlovely mature gardens. House had original owner in till lasy yr when we bought it. He was clearly avid gardner but over last few yrs he was in a home and house was tenanted, so garden has run totally wild.
Front garden is small - patch of lawn shared with adjoining neighbour - then approx 2ft bed before path and house. There are 3 HUGE bushes dominating the bed, one of which is a massive Hebe. I really want to take it out and plant a small ornamental tree, as the Hebe in particular totally dominates what quite a small garden..
Was going to try to transplant it but friendly neighbours sucked in teeth when I suggested it - roots could be huge they reckon.
