Flowering trees and shrubs – February 2020

Planting a selection of flowering and fruiting trees and shrubs was the focus of this community event in February 2020. We planted young trees along the dyke bank – oak, mountain ash, field maple and bird cherry. In the central section of the reserve we planted native shrubs such as dog rose, elder, alder buckthorn and guelder rose. These will give blossom in spring and fruits in autumn, giving pleasure to the community and food for wildlife.
