Hi ME ...

... I'm off to Bodnant in the next hour where there are experts who can help!!!  Any chance you can send a pic through to my phone 07788 995345 (What's App or as attachment to a text) so I can show them.

... also how tall is the tree, and are those pods about pea pod size and a bit squidgy - if yes to that then I know what it is!

Cheers

Dave

The Indian Bean Tree looks very nice as do the flowers and it has a height of 12 metres with a spread of 8 metres so it's a good job that you have a big garden ME.      $good$

Hi Hugo, the tree is not very big at the moment, it's a big garden  an old Edwardian house in Rhos on Sea, we are not moving in yet until various jobs have been done inside. Pic shots part of the back garden.

Very impressive ME,   it looks like it could rival Bodnant Gardens with that nice collection of trees.      You could have a few Pigeon lofts there.

Thanks to one of the Bodnant experts it seems to be an Indian Bean Tree (Catalpa) ... which does not come from India!  I was told there was one right next to main entrance to the Hall front courtyard (not where public are allowed) - unfortunately all the leaves had dropped.  That tree is approx 70ft high.

There are lots of variations so hopefully ME can establish which one he has.

ME will have to go some to rival Bodnant but that looks like a really good start!
