Let the mulching begin – many thanks Gary.

With the Woodland Trust trees (420) now all planted our attention has shifted to mulching the ground around them to suppress weed growth and retain moisture in the soil. Hopefully with less competition for nutrients and water this will allow them to get established and make strong growth.

Mr Gary Billington has very kindly given us some wood chip and yesterday delivered a big pile of it to the top of the field where we have made a small start.

This spring with no grazers in the field it is a riot of colour, firstly with a carpet of dandelions and now another yellow carpet of buttercups providing a veritable feast for wildlife. Purple clover and white daisy flowers are coming out and we are hoping that we are able to record all this diversity and would love your help – email or ring Jo 01978 821869

Ruabon Cemetery Wood

After lots of delays the planting of the new “Cemetery Wood” has started!
Councillor Dana Davies was on hand to mark out where the first hedging plants were to go and help plant them.
