    Here are some pics I promised sorry for the delay the phone wouldn't upload them to my fb
    The pics are only 1/4th of the garden as I cant get all the way in yet.

    Looks like ash and elder that you've been chopping down.
    Nice dogrose alongside the pavement.

    one was a elder and was so pretty but the lad wanted it gone so he could get a fence up as its all open to public. There is 2 more inside which will be kept and one just outside my gate. Unsure of the other ones though.

    I love the dog rose I pick from it every year think Ill dig it out and put it in my garden

    Ill get pics of other stuff and you can all tell me what to keep etc x

    Evans, if you clear it completely you won't get any bees or any other wildlife.

    But you don't just need flowers, although they are important.

    Instead of just concentrating on bees and flowers have a look at this The RSPB: Advice: Planning and creating a wildlife-friendly garden

    Chopping down? Not sure what you mean by this. I've not been chopping anything down? Haha

    Bees get vast quantities nectar and pollen from trees: yellow pollen from wiilow in spring, nectar from lime trees in summer, and ceanothus etc etc..

    If you stand under the beech trees 100 meters up the road from our house, you can hear the hum of bees.
