Cheal’s Weeping Cherry Tree
Weeping branches, double pink blossom, young leaves are bronze turn to bright green, can be pruned and maintained to suit a small garden. Flowers April-May.
This option might tie in nicely with the same tree chosen for the entrance to the Oaks.

45ltr - 2.5 - £180
Known for their stunning goblet flowers, some cultivars are among the first trees to blossom with their flowers emerging even before their leaves.
Magnolias are a great option as not only are they beautifully unique, they also offer great flexibility, coming in a huge range of sizes and colours as well as evergreen or deciduous.
