That’s day 2 done and dusted. A great day with Mark in Cork. A real mixed bag of trees worked on today nudging them in the right direction. Fair play to Mark, his collection gets better every time I see it with new exciting projects lined up.
Onward now to Millstreet….
Celebrating National Tree Week, March 5th – 12th. Part 5
Cryptomeria japonica ‘Spiralis’, Japan. 1852
If there’s one tree you must see at FOTA it’s rhe Cryptomeria japonica ‘Spiralis’. This striking evergreen rises in clumps of bright green cloud-like clusters, building on top of each other. Not surprisingly it’s the national tree of Japan, where it is regularly planted at temples and shrines. Here in Fota, there’s a well-worn path to a low gap at the base of the tree. If you crouch down and enter you can look up at a cathedral-like canopy and admire the rich, red, fragrant bark. Due to its tight, spiraling needles, it has the rather irreverent nickname of ‘granny’s ringlets’.
