New Trees

March 24, 2017

To improve views from the H bench on the top path a couple of larch trees have recently been felled along with a holly that was growing sideways into one of our star weeping beech trees. The cotoneaster near the Castle that’s suddenly died has been taken out too. So 4 trees out … but we’ve planted 4 new exciting specimen trees :- a replacement Cotoneaster, a new White Mulberry near the car park area, a Cornus Kousa (Japanese Dogwood) up the steps near the Burma Star memorial and a Cercidiphyllum Japonicum (Katsura) towards the allotment end of the gardens. Also, several Mediterranean pines have gone in as a part of the new plantings behind the Castle.
