Lovely day at Batsford yesterday and managed to take a few pics. Enjoy
And a few more...
although unlabelled, I’m pretty sure the first one is Mr Sun?
Last but not least..
A beast of a Shishigashira. The photo’s do not do its magnificence justice.
Ornatum is amazing Luke. Will it beat Portland's ???
The Koto-no-ito @dicky5ash mentioned;)
Probably not, but still..,
Beautiful Luke, the shot you took down the valley to the house is a special photo.
Very Autumnal, and on the 2nd September. Love it !!
Some of the colours starting to change gives you an idea of what is to come. 6 weeks from now it will be a wonderful place to go. Torn between that and Westonbirt lol
Tree of the day without doubt Luke. Sooo much character!!!
Same here, but Westonbirt might be a bit difficult this year with social distancing!!? It does get very busy there in the Autumn.
Lovely Batsford, thanks!
I think the tree in the first photos of the second post may possibly be A. shirasawanum 'Palmatifolium'.
I knew nothing about Batsford, I just tripped across it by chance..so I was not aware until I had spoken to staff in the nursery that they had an extensive collection of JM, I’d never heard of it..I will take a trip for sure.. As you have done Batsford, I’d go to Westonbirt in October!
Did you like that Koto no ito In the nursery? definitely worth the money I think..I’ve seen trees of that age sell for twice the price!
First pic was this P. Elegans I take it? Very nice :)
Second below.. ?? Leaf shape looks like Amoenum, very different from osakazuki’s that I’ve seen or was that tag photo related to the following photo?
Osakazuki! That’s why I took that photo. Incredible reticulation!
Yes the first one is Elegans. Very beautiful. There is an Elegans at Westonbirt and I have a picture of it in late October. It is one of my favourites.
Yes the Koto-no-Ito is well worth the £329 price tag! It has a very nice shape.
Recognise this leaf @dicky5ash? Lol
£329 is nothing these days for a large specimen tree and after seeing this thread today 4 leaves for $8,000.
The world has gone a little bit mad!!!
Lol You purchased the other fullmoon Attaryi?
Never seen it like this on osakazuki
Haha, no I just took a picture of it.
It was the last one
I know..I didn’t want to say but I didn’t like the look of the graft on the last one.. anything take your fancy or were you on best behaviour lol ?
Haha, you hit the nail on the head. Best behaviour.
