The Wilfred Owen Violin

I was lucky enough to be asked to carefully remove a branch from a Sycamore at Napier University Craiglockhart Campus, where Wilfred Owen and Sigfried Sassoon convalesed during World War I.

The Edinburgh violin maker Steve Burnett - creator of the famous 'Sherlock Violin', wished to commemorate the 100th year of WWI by making a violin from a branch of a tree growing in the grounds of the former Craiglockhart Hospital; the tree chosen was a Sycamore that would have been growing when the war poets were residing there, and would have been seen by them from the hospital windows.

Listen to the story on Radio Scotland, 'The Sycamore Sings: The Wilfred Owen Violin'.

The programme is aired on Monday 4th August at 11:03-11:31, and repeated on Wednesday 6th August at 13:32-14:00 and Thursday 7th August 05:02-05:30.

Are your trees suffering in these hot and dry conditions? Drought can be a precursor to Honey Fungus infection: get the goes out and give a fair sprinkling of water to the rooting areas - not too much as you don't want to waterloo the soil, which can be just as bad as drought!

What a fabulous summer, for plants and trees especially.  Warm (not too hot) with bursts of rain.  Even the lightning is good for plants as it fixes nitrogen so that it can be taken up by the plant's roots.
