Phil’s Escallonia

Part of my busy day yesterday was taking a few record photos at Phil’s house. He has touched for a rather nice collecting site for Escallonia that are part of a condemned hedge. As you can see these are not shohin!!

This was the unveiling. With a couple of hard frosts this week, Phil has covered them with plastic.


This twin trunk was my favourite



Stephen is in this one for scale, but bear in mind he is roughly the height of a hobbit 🙂

I also took a snap of this squat little Yew that’s ready for work this year.

This next picture of Phil’s pot shelf in his shed tells you all you need to know about his personality.

Below is Phil’s winter protection set up for some of his trees.

He makes a lovely cup of tea and his biscuits were of the highest quality 😉
