A quick update on the Air Layer Hawthorns.

What I have noticed is the difference in foliage size with the two trees.

                            Clives tree has very small leaves.

Where as Chriss’s tree has large leaves.   

Both these trees came from the same site so the differences are quite interesting.

I have two other Hawthorns in my collection that were collected from sites 30 miles appart. Now, these are very different in there growth pattern.

One has large leaves and is always the first to shoot, usually in April. The other dosen’t wake up until May and has smaller leaves.

I have always put this down to the area difference but now I am not sure. With these two new examples showing such variation but from the same site perhaps there must be some form of different seeding happening.

I will keep an eye on this.
