Hi everyone. I hope you’re looking forward to the garden waking up although we might have a wait a little longer and endure the ‘beast from the east’ first! I’ asking about garden trees in flower at the moment. I have passed several pink dainty flowering trees and wondered if anyone could recommend a smallish garden tree which has early spring blossom? Thank you.



Have a look at the attributes of the Amelanchier. Trees or shrubs they respond to pruning so should do well in most situations.

the ones now are either an early flowering Cherry or one of the Viburnums 'Bodnant' I think is one of them.

Vibrnum x bodnantense Dawn is a really good pink scented shrub./small tree and easily available.

That's the one I was thinking of Owd. Thanks

I have Vibrnum x bodnantense Charles Lamont but my only critiscism is that it flowers so early (even in December) that it takes a real pasting from the continuous frosts.

There is a third one called V.b.Deben which is paler, almost white.

Thanks but think I’m after a small tree with early spring blossom. Have just put up a photo for i.d.
