I bet the tree was overwatered and as for it’s current whereabouts, probably now compost! Nigel from Devon on October 29, 2018 at 1:24 pm Jack went on to become a star of stage and screen and appeared in several T.V. series as a specialist Outdoor extra. His most famous role was in several of the “Harry Potter” movies where he played the “Whumping Willow” (Not much make-up required). He is now in retirement at an Old oaks home. Derek Stevenson on October 29, 2018 at 2:16 pm I remember the Queen saying, when she visited our stand a Chelsea a few years ago, ” i once had a bonsai, but it died” .

Graham Brendan Roodt on October 29, 2018 at 5:27 pm This is one of those “to be continued..” blogs. Graham knows what happened to Jack. Come on, spill it? Michael Cooper on October 30, 2018 at 12:06 pm And I remember The Cricketers. As I young driver I ran into the back of an L driver who stalled at the junction. I’ll never forget the smirk on his face as the instructor told me “The driver behind is always to blame sonny” Bill on October 30, 2018 at 8:29 pm Jack fell down and broke his crown.
