Birch bark

The bark of our birch trees is amazingly varied. The colours vary from pure, ghostly white through shades of cream, yellow, orange, pink, red and brown. The colours change through the seasons as the old bark peels away revealing the fresh colours beneath. Visitors cannot resist touching and handling this amazingly tactile bark, which peels delightfully. Even during the winter our Birch light up the garden, as the leafless, colourful skeletons of the trees stand out from the barren winter ground.

Autumn colour

Autumn is a lovely time of year here in the garden. Many of our Birch trees produce wonderful yellow and orange leaf colour.
This is also the time that a lot of fungi start to fruit, so colourful toadstools start to pop up amongst the fallen leaves.

Winter wonderland

Stone Lane Gardens becomes a truly magical place when the snow lies thickly on the ground and the silver frost twinkles on every branch.

Spring

The shrub and herbaceous plantings beneath the trees make a glorious display, smothered in spring blooms.
