|One Rowan - one berry!
|One Rowan - no berries!
Once upon a time in a garden, there were 3 Rowans. One in the Woodland Border which reliably bears pretty pink berries; one in the Culvert Border which is always a mass of brilliant red berries. The third one in the Sofa Border rarely did anything ever and this year bore just a single solitary berry (photographed by Chris in disgust!) It never failed to produce masses of suckers beneath the graft and was Chris's most hated tree and, to be fair, was well overdue for replacement. I should say at this point that trees are Chris's great love in life! This Rowan's stay of execution ended today! A date with a chainsaw was in the diary!
