May 2012

We have planted over 15o trees and shrubs here at Strawberry Hill, all of which have come into leaf in the last few weeks. the colours look fantastic with great contrasts around the garden. Our mature Copper beech provides a lovely backdrop to the lush new growth on the grove of Limes. One of the greatest features of Walpole’s garden which we can fully reinstate is colour; this spring we have seen a great combinations of blossom on Almond trees, through to flowering on the native bird cherries (Prunus padus)
