|Can't wait to drive along between the trees after they have grown up in the next few years!|
Do you remember my post on the Tree Lined Driveways nearly a year ago? If so you will be pleased to hear that is is finally planted. This has been something I have always wanted even as a little girl. I remember driving along Victoria Avenue (those of you from Adelaide will know this street) and being mesmerised as we drove through the 'tree tunnel'.
With so many restrictions as to what we can plant in our area is was not an easy task finding a tree that would tolerate our conditions. My first choice would have been London Plane trees, but talking to friends in the area who had planted them they were not recommended.
We already have 22 Manchurian Pear trees in the house yard which are going extremely well and have had very little water or care given to them.
|The Manchurian's Blossom was beautiful this year.|
Given this I decided to stick with the pear family and have opted for another ornamental pear the Glensform -Cleveland Select down either side of the driveway. They are more upright than the Manchurian Pears but not quite so much as the Capital Pears I have near the veggie garden. They should spread nicely but not too much over the driveway.
