Improvement works to the arboretum at Market Bosworth Country Park have recently been completed involving the introduction of new ornamental species. These have enhanced the botanical value of the arboretum and provided a wider range of visual interest. The new planting includes a range of tree and shrub species which will display a diversity of colour and make a visit to the arboretum well worth while at any time of year.
The new trees and shrubs, which will compliment the existing feature trees and shrubs within the arboretum, include : –
- Japanese Maples – to provide additional areas of autumn colour
- Witch Hazel – to provide winter flowers/colour
- Dogwoods/Willows – to provide winter twig colour
- Azaleas/Rhododendron – to provide spring flower displays
Purple/Variegated leaved trees/shrubs to provide summer contrast (e.g. variegated dogwood, purple hazel, etc.)
Rangers at the country park have undertaken the planting with the able assistance of our regular volunteers.
