Is the Cedar of Lebanon, the same as atlantica Glauca?
I am not sure if you are able to help or if you can help in time, but I have a question and thought of you.
I am getting married on Sunday, to my lovely fiancée Amy. We are marrying at Clearwell Castle in the Peak district. To mark the occasion we decided it would be a great idea to plant a tree - watch it grow as we do… you get the picture.
Our favourite tree is the Cedar of Lebanon, so we have ordered it, it has been delivered and we are all bringing our wellies and tools to plant it in the gardens of the castle straight after the ceremony on Sunday.
It was noticed on delivery that the label said the tree was an atlantica Glauca. To cut a long story short we have been going back and forth with the tree shop saying this is a generic name and I have got the right tree, but my research (and the castle gardener) suggesting otherwise.
It is really important to us that we get this right - are you able to help?
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Andrew and Amy
