After weeks of bitter cold, Saturday 9th April was a bright, sunny, relatively warm spring day.
So Friends of Turner’s Nursery in Upper Parkstone got to work on the community orchard, planting fruit trees and native hedgerow plants and tidying the area we planted in the autumn. Good connections were made. Looking forward to picnics in the summer!
Gary using the boardfork made by John. It works really well, loosening and aerating the soil, allowing water to penetrate, without destroying soil structure. But unfortunately it broke so we now need a stronger version.
