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.
Summer Pruning of Fruit Trees
Organised by: Thornhayes Nursery Wednesday 8th August,
Talk and demonstration of summer pruning for commonly grown fruit types (apple, plum, pear, etc.) grown as bush, espalier, cordon and other trained forms. To start promptly at 2.00pm. Please arrive from 1.30pm when tea and coffee will be available. (Category: Technical) Details and costs: www.thornhayes-nursery.co.uk
We are looking at how climate change will affect the trees that are being grown and the effects of Ash Dieback which are increasingly visible on young trees in the valley
We are working with the Town Council on the recent proposal to plant more fruit trees.
