betula utilis jacquemontii
well i got my tree after my dear hubby played a trick on me, he came home from his mum and dads and presented me with a flower pot with a twig in it and said here is your birch, i stood there looking at it for a few mins not knowing what to say. he said it will grow he was acting so serious, kept a brave face although i felt like crying. myself and the kids went to my mum and dads he said he would follow. was so disappointed but tried not to show it, didnt say too much to him while at moms, when i came home he had the pot and the twig left on the table again and a perfume set, i got up and went down to get hot water bottles, when i walked into the bedroom there was my real birch, i let off a screech and could hear my hubby in colvunsions in the kitchen, was so happy to see my tree that i waited for ages for.
i also got some money as a gift so i am keeping this for the front garden makeover, hoping to add a red barked birch and maybe a witch hazel or 2. so excited to get working on the garden
