    29th May 2021 and my Westonbirt Orange continues to look so good when so many others have struggled after all the late and severe frosts of April.

    18th June 2022 and after two weeks of very hot weather, the rain has just started. But as can be seen, my Westonbirt orange has suffered no adverse effects from the heat at all.

    2nd July 2021 and my Westonbirt Orange is at it's height of Summer colour now. So easy to walk past as it's just a green leaf. But get up close and just look at that veigning and petioles that make it so very special.

    18th April 2022 and another season for my Westonbirt Orange. I just love how the new leaves just hang down.

    24th May 2022 and a month on and my Westonbirt Orange is now in full leaf. I do love the colours to the tips to of the lobes on this cultivar.
