Kevin. Good for you! I wish i could just dig them out, it’s rocky and tiring time consuming business where i am!
If you need a few hundred it’s not an option. I am sure you can see the allure in cleaning a piece of land adding straw, dumping compost and hotwatered seeds, walk off and come back and harvest fifty trees frim the soft compost in an hour in autumn.
At least that’s what i’m hoping for. Haha!
I went for a peak yesterday but nothings popping so far. No ash either, no plums, no hazels, no sweet chestnuts, the cuttings are slow too. Last year the willow was booming around this point in time, this year they’re timidly showing some foliage half expecting to be hammered back by some late crazy frost. Oddly enough mimicking the folk getting out and about unsure after month of masking up and home detention.
Nature is such a teacher!
