Tree planting 6th March 2017

We had a great tree planting session on Sunday afternoon. Rain stopped and we even had some sunshine but the wind was blowing a hoolie. We bought 9 new apple trees from Cornish Garden Nurseries with the money that has been donated from Tesco / Groundworks ‘Bags of Help’ fund.
Great names: Apple Sops in Wine / Hoary Morning / Apple Tom Putt / Apple Farmers Glory / Apple Egremont Russet / Apple Cox’s Orange Pippin / Apple Ashmeads Kernal / Apple Chiver’s Delight / Apple Charles Ross. 2 of the trees were adopted by Janet & Phoebe and they came up to plant them on Saturday.

Rupert Manley also brought up about 15 oak, ash, horse chestnut & sweet chestnuttrees for us to plant on the borders of the orchard to screen out the factories that lie alongside us & for wind protection.

We had a great team; myself (Elise), Duwayne, Senara & Tara, Gill, Neil & Finn, Noah, Rupert, Sandra & new volunteer Dawn who also took some of these lovely photos.
