Planting fruit trees and bushes in a forest garden

Share this post

This is a one day course covering the design placement and planting of fruit trees and bushes within a forest garden. We will be planning a strawbale heat sink within the forest garden and laying the rubber tyre foundation, to enable maximum warmth for these items. Also the planning and cutting of a mown path through it. We will be planting nut trees, mulberry, pear and raspberry and gooseberry bushes. Also how to keep what are considered as bad weeds and use them as edibles and others as nutrient suppliers. We boost our trees off with a good dose of our HH -2 compost which helps protect against excessive damp/drought conditions. Highly productive ecosystems.


This course is suspended while we look for a new farm
