Both Glo and Mo have chosen trees to follow during the year as a result of reading my recent post The plot hawthorn.
Glo’s is a corkscrew hazel which she passes on her regular walks down to beach. Her first post about it Making Days Count with the help of Harry! intrigued me somewhat but if you read it, the comments and subsequent posts all will be explained.
Have a look at The Tree Year for a list of trees chosen so far, which include a white mulberry in Central Park New York, a honeysuckle in a pot on a balcony in Switzerland and a tree in Kuwait. Others are to found in Australia, Turkey, France and elsewhere.
Many gardeners, myself included, will be settling down on Friday evening at 8.30pm to watch Life in a Cottage Garden with Carol Klein which is a new six part series. In this weeks programme Winter she tackles an unruly clementis that’s grown too successfully into a crab apple tree.
