Fraxinus Ornus

 

Manna Ash

Fraxinus is a genus which contains 45–65 species of usually medium to large trees, mostly deciduous. Commonly called Ash trees, they are widespread across much of Europe, Asia and North America. These fast-growing trees are grown for timber and firewood because of their dense wood and short time to maturity. They also make excellent ornamental specimens and street trees in sunny areas with moist, well-drained soil. Fraxinus ornus is a small ash tree with deep green, pinnate leaves and which bears clusters of fragrant cream-white flowers

Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Late Autumn

In spring or autumn, prepare a hole deep enough to allow at least 30cm of extra depth for potting soil, and approximately twice as wide as the root ball to allow for soil mixed with nutrients. Choose a spacious area as this tree will grow to very large proportions., avoiding proximitey to walls, houses or underground service pipes and cables. Add to the hole, a substantial amount of well rotted compost to help retain moisture whilst establishing and to feed the young tree in its early life.
