The trees planted at Seatown by the Chideock Society, local tree lovers and The National Trust are growing well. It’s now very clear that the old hedge line is returning and we can all feel proud that it’s our work that has helped to re-establish this ancient boundary.
As with all plants, though, they need to be given a chance to thrive against the weeds and grass, so we’ll be spending some time on Saturday 21st May, from 10.30, to clear around the base of the trees, re-tie guards in place and generally give them some TLC. The National Trust will be there helping too. If you’d like to help then meet us at the hedge line, near the Seatown car park. NO GARDEN EXPERIENCE IS REQUIRED! Wear some stout footwear and suitable clothing, and bring along gardening gloves and something to use for clearing grass and weeds, such as secateurs or a trowel. Even if you can only give an hour or so, it will help greatly. It’s always a convivial atmosphere and everyone involved gets a great sense of satisfaction.
