We have had the first of our tree deliveries from Frank Matthews. The ornamental trees are in and most of the trained fruit. Trained fruit trees are scarce this year so shop early.
Gardeners Question Time came from Bath University recently. They mentioned the lovely Silk Tree – Albizia julibrissin. This is a lovely tree for a small garden, with feathery foliage and unusual pink silky flowers in mid-summer, and is a lot hardier than it looks. We have two varieties –‘Ombrella’ and ‘Evy’s Pride’.
