Trees Acttractive to Birds
Despite having a bird table with nuts, seeds, fatballs and mealworms available daily, I am having trouble attracting birds into my garden. My friend has advised me that the the lack of any trees is probably the cause. So, I would like to grow a decent size tree in a container if possible. Unfortunately I have no idea where to start! My garden is incidentally, west facing.

Nearly any type of tree will attract birds, if for nothing else, it provides them with shelter. They particularly enjoy fruit trees or anything that produces berries (which are a nice treat in winter).

In addition, you could also plant sunflowers in the area or add a water feature, like a birdbath.
