Glorious pink Astilbe flowers at Marwood Hill Gardens, Devon - Dr Smart's garden is set in a beautiful and sheltered valley with lots of well established plants and trees. A café and plant shop are on the site too.
Ardkinglas Woodland Gardens, Scotland' The woodland garden holds a number of ‘Champion Trees’, the tallest or broadest of their species in the United Kingdom. These include the tallest tree in Britain and the ‘mightiest conifer in Europe’.
Trees can take on some interesting shapes as they grow. This cypress in the Congaree National Park once straddled the stump of another fallen tree. The stump has since rotted away to leave the cypress in an interesting position. - Photo via Leo Rose
