We were very fortunate to receive a collection of foraging tree seedlings in March 2016; these were donated by the Woodland Trust (sponsored by Ikea). We also applied for, and received, some funding from Greggs for a watering system, compost and zillions of pots. The little seedlings were potted in April 2016 and, since then the trees have been re-potted twice as they have now tripled their size!
The plan now is to put these into the hedge-line on the approach lane to the fields, so that by the time Doonfest is underway they should have beefed up a bit and possibly still in blossom. It means that, for the future, the fields will have berries and nuts which will encourage more wild life to the fields. We have made a second application to the Woodland Trust for more seedlings to plant up.
