June 2014
This young Giant Redwood tree stands in front of the Maldon District Museum which is just inside the gates of Promenade Park. The label states that this is one of six Giant Redwoods bought in a batch, so the question is where are the other five? In August 2011 this one was looking a little sorry for itself, being a little browned over much of its foliage and a bit droppy at the top. I have often noticed this in the first few years of planting out a Redwood, so hoped it would recover over the next few years and begin some vigorous growth.

Low and behold! In July 2012, nearly one year later (after a lot of rain), this Wellingtonia was looking much healthier and by 2014 onwards it really started to flourish.

Maldon Museum is situated in the Park Keeper's house and is open April to October: Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays at 2pm to 5pm, Sundays & Bank Holidays at 11am to 5pm and is worth a visit.
