Whitebeam progress

Now that the leaves have opened on the whitebeams, they are wasting no time in growing – it’s amazing how quickly the stems are increasing in size. One of the trees is even sprouting rowan from the base – no doubt coming from the rowan root stock that the whitebeams are grafted onto.

Four of the five trees seem to be doing well, but the growing tip of one isn’t growing, so it will likely need some remedial action.

The older whitebeam in the front garden, though apparently a different variety, gives us a good idea of what we can look forward to.
