What a tree - it's got it all! 2011-05-27

Our original Paulownia tree has now had it's first flower and is wonderful. Nicknamed 'Humphrey' I am on a mission to spread the word about this fantastic addition to any garden. It gets going in spring better when very small when protected over the winter. Makes a lovely tree and in Lancashire I've got a 7 year old tree at around 15 ft tall. But the joy with them is that if you prune them and grow them as a shrub (if you've not got room for or don't want a tree), the leaves are enormous and resistant to most things I've come across. Conveniently in autumn the seem to drop their leaves in a day or two so they can easily be collected and composted - no faffing around with a rake. I love it. Would never have a garden without one!
