Spring Blooms in Dorset


Society member Michael Blooman has shared photographs of rhododendrons and other trees on his property. These were taken at the end of April and beginning of May exactly when he was hoping to host a visit by other Society members. His garden has an inspiring backdrop of a pinetum planted in the 1850s now managed by The Woodland Trust with Cedrus atlantica and Sequoia giganteum alleged to be the tallest tree in the country at 159 feet. His extensive collection includes the huge white flowers of R. griffithianum, the vermilion R. thomsonii and the pale orange of R. cinnarbarinum - all found in Bhutan - as well as the yellow of R. sinofalconeri of Vietnam.
