TIPS FOR JULY/AUGUST

We are in the midst of a really dry period – even some silver birch leaves in my new plantation are turning yellow.    Our newly planted trees – rowans on The Ham amongst others – are being watered regularly, thanks to help from local residents.    Otherwise there isn’t much needs doing.    Enjoy a walk amongst the trees, whether wandering on Muttersmoor in the shade of conifers or cosying down in Blackmoor Gardens where the children can explore a newly planted cool shady corner.
