Quercus x bushii ‘Seattle Trident’ had gorgeous light pink new growth. The huge leathery leaves are therefore a big surprise. A really good new oak for the collection. Planted in only 2017.

One of the three year old Magnolia ‘Caerhays Splendour’ has had an ants’ nest inside the spiral made of earth. This would have quickly killed the tree if not removed.

Not more than half of our 2 years daffs are out of their pans from lack of labour and energy. The buddleias are good also odd flowers are open on Auriculatum, Brachycarpum, Caucasicum, Primulicum with other mountain forms including Hippophaeoides which is very pretty.
