A new hedge

Other farmers round here remove hedges – we are adding them back in!

We first planted this hedge in January 2020 as part of a Community Tree Planting Day – see stuff about that here.

It has done reasonably well, given the really dry summer we had in 2020, the wind and all the deer and hares who like a nibble. It’s interesting to see how much better the hedge planted (the same day and with the same trees) has done around the front of the kitchen garden along the drive by the house.

In 2024, we added a few saplings harvested from elsewhere around Wakelyns with the help of Meer Bomen Nu.

Here’s the planting and watering from 2020:
