Hello,

Here's some pictures of my new Escallonia collected around New Castle area early this month.

Hope you like it. I'd much appreciate any comments/ suggestions.

Regards,

Faisal

Hello Faz. What is it planted in? Looks like straight garden soil. It might be worth repotting it before it starts growing. Lovely wide base, with lots of carving oportunities again. I wouldn't suggest any styling ideas at this stage, as it may die off in certain areas.

It won't die off up here in my area. Send it up immediately. It's for its own good, you know. Wink

Great potential Faisal. Looking forward to seeing how this one develops.

Hi Fiona,

Actually it's not too far from your area. It's in Newcastle Upon Tyne at the moment.
Very close to Willowbog. Good 6 hours drive from London. Not sure how and when i will be able to collect it.

I'm glad you like it.

Regds.

Hi Will,

I'm not sure what's it planted in but whatever it is, doesn't look too good. Like I said, It was only collected cpl of weeks ago so no
styling/ carving at this stage. Mayee in a cpl of years.

Cheers

Hi Faisal,

Cracking looking tree.

I'm going to Willowbog in March - I could save you that six hour drive if you just give that tree to me Laughing

Cheers for now.
