Manna Ash Overview
DUE TO THE SPREAD OF CHALARA FRAXINEA (ASH DIEBACK DISEASE) RESTRICTIONS HAVE BEEN IMPOSED BY THE UK GOVERNMENT PREVENTING THE MOVEMENT OF HOMEGROWN AND IMPORTED PLANTS. MEMBERS ARE ADVISED NOT TO OFFER ANY FRAXINUS TREES FOR SWAP OR SALE UNTIL RESTRICTIONS ARE LIFTED. The flowering ash will perform better in colder regions. It will bear striking profuse fluffy 10cm long clusters of fragrant cream to green blossoms. The seeds will hang on the tree until late winter. The dark green, oblong-oval leaves are about 25cm long and are divided into 7-12 leaflets.
How to propagate Manna Ash
