Hi I recently moved to a new home. Nice garden which is coming to life this spring. I cannot identify many of the shrubs and a couple of trees. Can I send picture of first tree and hopefully someone will be able to kindly identify :)
Kind regards

    Always exciting to see what’s coming to life....It’s possible the Flamingo willow tree. Salix Integra ‘Hakuro-Nishiki’.
  • Wow....thanks....may need to send more pictures soon :)

    I've a vague recollection that it may be a Salix Flamingo (or similar variety).
    Keep an eye on the wire from your fairy lights - as the trunk expands it will either cut into the bark or may blow a fuse.

    Knowledge is knowing that a tomato is a fruit.
    Wisdom is not putting it in a fruit salad.
  • thank you for tip regarding the lights :)
  • This is the second tree in our garden....any ideas what this one may be please

    Looks like another type of Willow tree. Possibly Salix Matsundana.
  • Thanks so much Borderline :)

    Viburnum Mariessii. Best left unpruned and it forms beautiful tiers of flowers
  • Thank you Hostafan1  :)
