Surveying our growth so far ….

As most of the country was experiencing flooding I spent yesterday scorching under a blazing June sky, mapping all the trees we have planted so far.

As is always the case with best laid plans,  the reality of where trees precisely ended up is still needing to be discovered!.  After a whole day with the 50 meter tape measure and swimming through the long grass I am about half way through getting a full map of all the canopy species. (check here for the 7 layers of a forest garden)  We will use this map when designing the herb and shrub layer of the garden and I hope to be able to share it with you on Sketchup soon.

Creating the pond

We created the pond to increase biodiversity, moisture levels and hope that some frogs will come to help control slugs and other pests in the forest garden.
