September’s issue of The Garden, the RHS magazine, arrived yesterday. Browsing through the letters page, I spotted a familiar name — my own! I sent my short epistle in a couple of months ago and had assumed it was passed over but there it was:
Many thanks to Ursula Buchanan for the column inches she has used to discuss all manner of subjects. In her final contribution (Garden talk, July, p446) she mentioned Carpinus betulus ‘Fastigata’ trees growing along an avenue of the A40 north of Oxford — finally I was able to put a name to the double row of trees that I enjoy every time I take that route. Inspiring and informative to the last.
