Surrounding the whole of this garden are avenues of trees, offering different experiences throughout the year. Acer freemania , Canadian maple, wonderful lush foliage with truly magnificent red autumn colour. Also, in about 20 years’ time they will provide us with maple syrup. Ulmus parvifolia, Chinese elms, the only elm tree not affected by the elm leaf beetle and will soon give us wonder trunk colours. Malus floribunda, flowering crab apple, this is the closest we can get to cherry blossom without suffering cherry and pear slug damage. Amazing Spring colour, deep pink buds opening up to clear white. Amazing bee food!! This is a stand out avenue in late September, looking like an avenue of fairy floss.
