During lock down, we have been planting a mixture of native British trees and shrubs. We ordered a mixture of over 200 plants from the Woodland Trust, including English Oaks, Crab Apples, Alders, Blackthorns, Mapel, Hazel and WIld Cherry, and have placed them around the borders of our land. We hope that these will benefit the wildlife, soil and also our wellbeing; plus ofcourse the environment.
