Tree planting Sunday 5th Feb

We had a great work party this afternoon where we planted out 15 new trees and pruned the existing trees. Nice change from just tackling brambles, though we did a bit of that too.
Kevin from Cornish Garden Nurseries brought us the trees on Wednesday and gave us a great lesson on how to prune our trees so now we knew how to do it properly. We got a lovely selection of 8 Apple trees, 5 plum and 2 pear trees – don’t you love some of these names….

Thanks to all the volunteers who came to help us. Thank you also to St Ives Town Council who donated £400 towards buying these trees which we bought from Cornish Garden Nurseries.
