Catalpa Aurea!

That’s Indian Bean Tree to you and me!!  We purchased a little whip of a tree about 12 years ago and popped it into the centre of our Hornbeam circle here at Steppes B&B.  Just look at it this year – the flowers are amazing and the beans will be about 8 inches long later in the season.  We have created a small seating area within the Hornbeam circle which has a very calming atmosphere.

Come along and enjoy the vibe and stay with us for a couple of days and if the timing is right you can take home some beans to grow your own Catalpa Aurea!  Our Indian Bean Tree isn’t the only unusual specimen in Herefordshire, there are plenty of other fantastic gardens to explore such as Hampton Court, near Leominster.
