Acer griseum & Cornus mas

Acer griseum

Today, the weather was glorious, actually quite hot, but we cannot complain after last week. Sarah and I worked in Gordon and Mary's garden today planting some very exciting stuff. Acer griseum found its place on the Paddock Lawn and three very large Cornus mas were planted in the Spring Garden. The Cornus root balls were massive and it was quite a feat tucking them in amongst all the spring flowering beauties. The Acer and Cornus were particularly exciting additions for me because I had seen both these trees in all their glory at Hidcote!
