A question on Gardener’s Question Time a couple of weeks ago was about a tree growing out of another (I think it was a rowan growing on a pine or fir).
This is a lovely phenomenon. It’s called inosculation, or a marriage tree or husband-and-wife tree. I saw one on a Welsh hillside. Here it is. It’s a hawthorn growing out of an ash.
I love trees.
(This reminds me, I must check the health of all of our ash trees…)
