With the removal of the last of the fallen cypresses in the wind break during the Autumn an opportunity has been taken to replant this area with a new wind break of Tree Sea Buckthorn (Hypophae Salicifolia) against the southern boundary.


These have been grown from seedlings and it is hoped that at least one of them will be female.


In the western corner there is an American Persimmon (Diospyros Virginiana) and a Russian Olive (Eleagnus Angustifolia).


Towards the front of this new area I have planted a Chinese Persimmon (Diospyros Kaki) and a couple of Beach Plums (Prunus Maritima), one grafted and the other a two year old seedling.


Against the steps is a Szechuan Pepper (Zanthoxylum Simulans). Elsewhere in the garden I have planted two more Beach Plumbs on the banks of level 4 and an additional Nanking Cherry to each of the two groups on levels 3 and 4.
