Hard Graft

On Sunday 14th November, the '4 Js' a.k.a Jan B, Jan H, Jocelyn and Josie, set to work planting the 105 saplings included in the Woodland Trust's 'jams, jellies, chutneys and cordials' community tree planting pack.

Using a plan devised by Malcolm, they planted 30 crab apple, 30 blackthorn, 20 elder and 10 dog rose in a double staggered row to form an edible hedgerow.

Fifteen hazel were used in two rows of 7 and 8 which eventually will form an archway into the community garden.

The weather could have been better and by the end of two hours we looked like we had been to Glastonbury but knowing we had planted he first trees for many, many years is a great feeling!

Thanks to Prestonlinks Woodland Group for letting us reuse their tree protectors and stakes.
