    Phyllostachys aurea - one of the most fastigiate of the bamboos.

    They are collingwood stainless steel 3 watt warm white spike spotlights, although for some reason which completely baffles me, Collingwood have recently seen fit only to produce this light in a frosted steel finish, which doesn't match a lot of their other fittings.

    Amelanchier lamarkii. Beautiful early flower followed by black berries and great autumnal colour. Make sure you treat your paving though to ensure that berries don't stain, although I think the berries tend to get eaten by birds (another plus point) before they fall.

    This is not an off the peg product. It was bespoke made for this project.

    Is that bamboo in front of the garden wall?

    Hi Tom, its phyllostachys aurea. The new shoots are green, turning to gold with age and according to light levels.

    Hi Amanda, I'm glad you like it. 2.2 x 3m is very very small. The tree in the picture, Amelanchier lamarkii is great for small gardens, slow growing, tolerant of a variety of conditions etc. Multi stem is great though unless it is a very compact multistem you may well find there is not room, so a standard tree would be better. Also, there will be many large shrubs that might be suitable eg camellia, viburnum, drimys etc etc. Depending on where you are, you could look at summer flowering evergreens such as hoheria, eucryphia or luma apiculata. These are all evergreen. The picture above is taken not long after planting so the herbaceous is yet to do its thing. I planted hakonechloa macra, astrantia major alba, polystichum setiferum and persicaria amplexicaulis along with the buxus dome and trachelospermum jasminoides. If you need help, the best thing would be to contact me by email.
