BETULA UTILIS VAR.
JACQUEMONTII

We have our very own
Snow Queen.


Our Snow Queen. Please ignore the surrounding
mess, it's a work in progress!


Remember when we had the big storm in November
and a tree fell down in our garden? Well, just before
Xmas we received a wonderful surprise gift from
out lovely neighbour Mr G. He'd bought
us our very own birch!

They have one in their garden that he brought over
from Sweden years ago. Ours is a Himalayan birch
"Snow Queen" (Betula utilis var. jacquemontii) and
it's going to look like this when it grows
(obviously without the "pots"):

Thank you once again Mr G for the
brilliant present! May it grow
to be as magnificent as
your birch!
