My wonderful friend went to the RHS show in Cardiff recently and she bought me some basketry willow to start to grow for the farm!!! As the banks of the streams we want to plant it down are not at all ready for the willow I have planted them in pots in the garden here at home!!
I have also got some trees growing in pots in the garden ready to be moved down in the Autumn to repopulate hedgerow gaps. I have a elder, a blackthorn, a crabapple and a cherry.
No rest for the wicked here!! James’ parents and my mother came back down to us on the Wonderwool weekend!! Mum came for Wonderwool and Dad filled the car with tools for us!! Hedge trimmer, etc etc and James’ parents brought a chainsaw, and some furnishings for the hovel among other things not sure how much we can fit into the car with ourselves and dogs for the May Bank holiday weekend!! But hey we have POWER tools for the clearing of brambles and trees!!!! Yay!!!
