DID YOU KNOW?  The wood of the ASH TREE is remarkably strong and flexible, and is excellent for construction because it doesn’t split when manipulated. In the past it was used to make stagecoaches, railway wagons, cartwheels, oars, early aeroplanes and the frame of the Morris Minor car!    Happy Gardening   Eileen
