A Day at Bluebell Part 3

Apart from many fine specimens of betulas and sorbus Bluebell displayed so many other wonderfully interesting shrubs and trees. Here is a gallery of the photos I took of some of my other favourite specimens.

Prunus x ‘Catherine’

Euonymus europaeus ‘Thornhayes’

Euonymus clivicola var. rongchuensis

Metasequoia glyp ‘Matthaei Broom’ and Abies koreana ‘Silberlocke’

Gingko biloba ‘Icho’

I will finish with a special and unusual Euonymus. We were shown it by the founder and co-owner of Bluebell itself, who approached us as we wandered among the garden areas.

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.
