Hedge Planting March 2017

Hedge Planting

18 March 2017 – Hedge Planting Day 1 – Good Progress Made

The Wild Flower Group and volunteers from the village joined with a local farmer to plant hedges along the bridle way running eastwards from Home Farm during the weekend 18/19 March. The mixed hedge which contains 4,000 plants is made up from hawthorn, blackthorn, hazel, field maple, crab apple and dog roses. After planting, the plants were staked and protected from rabbits, hare and deer.

Thanks to all who came and helped. Your work will be appreciated by people and wildlife in the years to come.

25 March 2017 – Hedge Planting Day 2 – Further Progress Made

Planting along the eastern edge of the field was completed (southwards alongside the bridle path from NGR TG 40933 15864 to its intersection with Church Road).
