‘He’ll get the birch’

Stone lane birchesNot a punishment for speeeling errors in my homework, or a flagellated Scandinavian loosening of the pores in the sauna but sleeping beauties from Stone Lane Gardens have arrived.

We have all seen white Betula utilis (Himalayan birches) in fancy office block car parks, show gardens, designer magazines or public gardens.B. Mt Luoji rt looking as you move about the internet or the built environment and you shall see them. They’re wide spread use is because these ARE GREAT TREES. Lovely bark in the winter, an open and not too spreading a canopy and roots not so demanding that they prevent the growth of all but nettles underneath them making them perfect for the garden. Their timescale fits with ours too…

Landscape gardeners CheltenhamYes trees are great, but in most cases we plant for posterity and enjoy the labours of those before us. However, birches look their best in our timescale. The trees photographed below are 7-12 years from planting and will reach their best around 25 years. This is, for the average tenure of a homeowner just perfect. Sold? I’ll plant you another white multi-stemmed birch….BUT WAIT, there is a new way.

From recent seed collections in China and the Himalayas we now have access to trees with a wider range of colours. These pictures below were taken at the the national collection and my supplier ‘s garden, Stone Lane. I have spoken to those who have seen forests of these trees in the wild and I can onvly enviously imagine that it must be one of natures grandest sites.

I'm looking for suggestions as to how do gardening/landscape consulting. I like working with businesses and homeowners, communicate well with both, and have vast experience in most areas of landscaping. I don't want to be acting as a contractor, rather as some kind of liaison or teacher

Garden Railroad


Over the last four years or so, Ds helped my dad design and build this G scale railroad in my parents' back yard. The layout includes models of the ranch MY granddad grew up on, as well as outbuildings representing all of my generation's hobbies - My dh is proprietor of the bookstore, sil has a candy store, my brother is represented by a hardware store, and I'm the schoolmarm. LOL.
The train station is called "Liberty" in honor of Ds whose b-day is July 4th. He picked the name.
My mom (who loves to garden) is in charge of the landscaping.
