The Garden Pavilion construction on our croquet lawn is progressing well, this oak structure will be open sided, and suitable for wedding ceremonies, small barbecues and the like.

A lovely new wall and steps have been built on our croquet lawn in preparation for the Garden Pavilion above. This replaces a century old wall in the same position.

The Catalpa collection of Indian Bean Trees in the Beale Arboretum has been awarded National Collection Status by Plant Heritage, the successful conclusion to a decade long project of planting these beautiful trees, and joins the National Collection of Taxodium (Swamp Cypress) and Caprinus Betulus (Hornbeam).

The Dogwoods (Cornus) in the Beale Arboretum have been spectacular during June. Here is Cornus kousa ‘Venus’ looking stunning.
