Ty Rhos Trees nursery

A quick trip to a lovely local nursery for just a couple of hedging plants soon expanded

Went to see Aisha at Ty Rhos Trees on Saturday. We supposed to be picking up a few privet hedging plants. But we ended up with a black Elder (Sambucus nigra ‘Black Beauty’) for the patio (a fruiting native ornamental cultivar). And then I had to pick up a couple of Alder Buckthorn (Frangula alnus) because they’re one of the best native hedging plants for wildlife and I just haven’t grown them at home before. And then the storms took down a couple of fence panels, so we’ve decided to grow a few Guelder Rose (Viburnum opulus) because, well, the native species is just stunning and way nicer than a fence panel. And then were some native Bloodtwig Dogwood (Cornus sanguinea) and I have a soft spot for dogwoods, and again, never really grown it at home. So now, the makeshift nursery by the side of the drive is getting bigger. And the bill was a bit more than was originally planned.
