Blencogo Willow

Bob Brandt - Blagdon Gardens Willow

Blagdon Gardens is a small privately-run commercial nursery based in the Victorian walled kitchen garden and orchard of Lord Ridley's Blagdon Estate, 8 miles north of Newcastle upon Tyne. The willow plantations were established from Long Ashton provenance cutting material and are grown using the minimum of artificial chemicals, pesticides or weedkillers. I saw my first Red Squirrel for 30 years while visiting the nursery in Dec 2000!
