8 new trees have been added to the hydrangea garden. 4 for the outer garden and 4 in the walled garden. They are all birches and will add dappled shade and winter interest with their colourful barks. They all come from Barcham Tree Specialist.

Thank you to Derby City Council for providing them and the 2 tree planters from Derwent Treescapes who cheerfully put them in the ground and carefully surrounded them with sturdy supports, in not so clement weather. They have added these to the 300 trees they plant between them every year.
