There is no Second Sunday gardening in February! We are organising a planting session in the Wordsworth Road section of BG – near the basketball practise area – later this month or next.
Watch out for details.
Today, Russell Miller pruned the quince trees in the orchard; he is going to prune all the large trees in the section of the orchard nearest to Shakespeare Walk, but is leaving the plum, cherry, almond and peach trees till later in the year, when re-growth won’t be so vigorous.
The tree which is currently flowering in this section of the orchard is the almond – grown from an almond that fell into a pot in Pat’s garden!
