Summer life in the arboretum

Summer is here and it’s time to enjoy longer days out and about in our glorious countryside. After the abundance of new life in spring, the summer brings a sense of tranquillity and rhythm as plants and animals enjoy the warmer months.

Penny Jones, our Propagator at Westonbirt, provides an update on an exciting new season of planting for the arboretum.

Westonbirt wakes up

Bright mornings, longer days and the singing of the morning chorus are a sure sign that spring is well and truly on the way! It’s nature’s show-time and the arboretum is full of the colours, sounds and energy of new life.
