You’ll notice the change of title compared to The plot hawthorn in January as I’ve decided to watch a second plot tree as well.
The hawthorn looks much like it did last month although there are clear signs of impending new growth. Click on the thumbnail and you’ll see there are some daffodils near by, and the red blobs at the top of the photo is the rhubarb.
The second one is, so I’m told, a plum tree that appeared last spring growing up through the pallet patio!Thankfully it’s near the edge, and in a relatively good position. The old broom handle is to hopefully stop me from damaging it. It’s about knee height at the moment but I’m told that it’ll grow fairly quickly so I’ll be interested to see how it progresses over the coming months.
As I mentioned in my original Tree Year post The plot hawthorn there is also a foot high oak tree growing next to the dustbin lid pond. I may well mention that once it grows some new leaves and I tidy up a bit around it.
