Just for the record, its mild and damp today and finally I had some spare time to plant.
30 x Holly - heeled in pending a place on the slop, back of the woodland. Anywhere that can use evergreen holly.
20 X red stemmed Cornus, planted in front of the felled sycamore tree.
20 X green stemmed Cornus, planted at the bottom of the slope under the power line.
3 X woodland Honeysuckle and 3 X cotoneaster, at the fence at the back of the woodland. Fingers crossed this takes, it tends to be too dry to support growth and I have to walk round there and remember to water it for a couple of years at least.
The Council have also been busy planting. 3 sessions with different community groups. I took part in the first group with Salters Gate school. I think there are around 200 shrubs planted on the bank above the land slip.
From what I can remember off the top of my head;
Red Mrs Popple Fuchsia
Red flowering currant
Blue Ceanothus (Californian Lilac)
- there are probably others, I can't remember
Planting scheme designed b the council landscape architect. It was complicated, but we followed it to the design brief.
Wild flower area to be re seeded next Spring. All is good in the wood.
