Cherry Plum Tree Flowers

Unlike most early bloomers in Spring, the cherry plum flowers are found on trees rather than low-lying plants.

The tree itself can grow up to 15m tall, but the flowers only reach 2cm across. They have five stark white petals and long deep yellow stamen, which appear early-mid February.

These flowers are easily confused with blackthorn flowers, which are more of a cream colour and often bloom later than the cherry plum.

Woodland Trust to Help Dying Ash Trees

In recent news, the Woodland Trust is to help dying Ash Trees!

The charity has signed a £4.5 million contract to develop a more transparent supply chain for sourcing UK trees.  Woodland Trust states that the deal will ensure that the trees it plants over the next few years are from fully traceable seed stock sourced from throughout the UK and Ireland.

This will help to reduce the risk of tree diseases and premature dying of trees, as seen with the Ash Tree dieback which begun in 2012.
