Report from the Quaker Burial Ground

Susan Tomes writes:

Early in May the large Paulownia tree came into flower in the burial ground.  It was a pretty special sight as its unusual to see such a big tree with purple foxglove like flowers, and according to our neighbours it doesn’t flower every year.  The flowers have preceded the leaves this year rather than appearing together because  it has been so dry.

Last Autumn I brought some of the seed pods to Bath Meeting  and I wonder if any Friends have had any success in germinating the seeds?

Neighbours report it doesn’t flower every year.

  1. I’m afraid I took 3 and looked after them as well as I could, but none has germinated. I always knew I had brown fingers
