The germinated seeds are now in a seed tray and protected from predation by wired tops.
After selling out of all our trees at the earliest period i can remember, we have now almost finished transplanting the junior stock into their new beds. Over two beds remain empty, showing the lack of junior stock coming through, despite increases in seed gathering recently.
It seems we can't keep pace with demand despite constantly increasing our stock!
As a result of these conversations we hope to see more micro-tree nurseries set up and more trees grown on in private gardens, school projects, allotments and nature reserves.
Finally, the last cutting of old, damaged trees has been made, giving us a pile of timber, which will go into the dead hedging in the wood behind the nursery.
