Found this weeping willow in Homebase for £5.97 which seemed an unmissable bargain. B&Q had some half the height for £10. It is about 4ft tall, about to come into bud and looked quite healthy. I've placed it in front of the patio so that we have more to look at from the conservatory. The flower border was widened a little to give the tree room to grow and expand though it should remain a compact size. The lawn was entirely dug up last autumn as it was perfoming badly with bald patches, compaction and white fungus in the soil. I replaced the turf but after settlement over the winter I have filled in a few sunken patches with more topsoil and a touch of grass seed.
