I really like this tree, should i plant this in my garden though?
If it grows to its full height and spread it will be too big, can it be kept under control with pruning?
I need screening in my new build garden, and i'm slowly building a border by taking up the slabs as you can see from the pic - i wanted to plant this when i take up the next two slabs, central, before the roses
Any advice would be much appreciated

Hi, Janine,
Given its mature height and spread (6mx5m), I think the bed is too small. The roots & branches will probably disrupt the integrity of the fence, and the bed, in my humble opinion, will probably look unbalanced. You can prune, but will have to do it frequently as this is a fast growing tree.

Hi - thanks for your comment - i did buy this but planted it in a large terracotta pot, and nearly a year on it is doing well and looks great
