Hi, Jean,
What a lovely space you have - and those doors must let in so much light! Unfortunately, I am not sure of the best place to buy lightweight tree planters, but it might be worth a look on ebay every now and again - you can get some used ones for good prices. I do have some plant suggestions that will do well in your exposed site.
- Crataegus laevigata 'Paul's Scarlet' - Deciduous tree with clusters of double, dark pink flowers. Very hardy and tolerant of pollution and coastal sites.
- Prunus laurocerasus - very hardy evergreen shrub - if you don't like this cultivar, there are many to choose from - check them out on thi site.
- Cornus florida or Cornus florida f. rubra - lovely small, deciduous trees happy in sheltered or exposed sites. Colder winters encourage berry production.
- Laburnum x watereri 'Vossii' - another smallish deciduous tree
- Chamaecyparis pisifera - conifer very tolerant of exposed sites and loads of cultivars with varying leaf colours, habits, heights to choose from. Have a look at the choices on this site.
- Berberis x stenophylla 'Corallina Compacta' - compact rounded deciduous shrub with yellow flowers
