A Day at Bluebell – Part Two Betulas and Sorbus

So we are here back at Bluebell Nursery and Arboretum when we will look for interesting varieties of betulas and sorbus.

First off a look at some of the arboretum’s betulas.

So there we have my selection from the many incredible Betulas at Bluebell which I shall follow with some examples of their collection of Sorbus.

Sorbus x ‘Yunnan Pink’ (above) and Sorbus ‘Wesley Gold’

Sorbus eburnea.

In part 3 of my Bluebell Arboretum posts I will look at exmples of their specimen acers, liquidamber, malus and euonymus.

A retired primary school head teacher, I now spend much of my time gardening in our quarter acre plot in rural Shropshire south of Shrewsbury. I share my garden with Jude my wife a newly retired teacher , eight assorted chickens and a plethora of wildlife. Jude does all the heavy work as I have a damaged spine and right leg. We also garden on an allotment nearby. We are interested in all things related to gardens, green issues and wildlife.

This is a special time of year as each tree through buds, fruit, and blossom shows its distinct character. These change , grow, and develop each day . each day is worth exploring. Thanks for these beautiful examples.
