Here is the Abies Koreana.


The cones aren’t showing the true blue in the photo because I was looking into the sun.

Nice.
how old is it

We were trying to work it's age out Brian. It was in a planter for 5 years and only grew to about 4 ft ( it would be about 3ft when we bought it) then we planted it in the garden in 2010 and it's grown to about 14ft. So we've had it about 16years. I have no idea how old it was when we bought it.

Cracking tree! Thanks for that HB. I am stuck in today because our boiler is leaking...all carpets soaking...engineer has found three leaks so far....I would swear, but you lovely people don't deserve to be exposed to my bad mouth!

Proper Christmas tree now though isn't it? I'm planning to light mine in a few years!

That's Awful Karen. I hope it's fixed PDQ. Will your insurance cover the cost. I do hope so and the carpets aren't t ruined. We were lucky when our boiler went, it just began to seep so we could get it sorted quickly.
