At their last meeting members of the Gardening Club also needed help when it came to identifying trees when faced with many bare twigs. Luckily Richard Todd, Head Gardener of Anglesey Abbey was at hand to assist us with the answers to his opening quiz! His Powerpoint presentation included beautiful pictures of the same trees in their full splendour. We left the meeting resolved to learn more about Cambridgeshire’s trees.
Do try and visit Anglesey Abbey in March when you will see a spectacular sight as the springtime bulbs, blue scilla and chionodoxa cover the ground beneath the trees in the lime tree avenue. Also at the beginning of April a carpet of shocking pink tulips can be admired beneath those infamous silver birches!
