Winter gardening jobs

We wind down abit at the gardens during the deep winter months. However there are still jobs to be done. We have been pruning the Willows and the fruit bushes & trees, plus planting bare root plants & bulbs for the spring. It’s a good time to move or plant dormant trees and our Walnut had been allocated a new home where it can have more room to flourish. It’s important to maintain as much root as possible when moving a tree, so we spent several hours digging it out of heavy clay & preparing its new home. A tough, muddy job, but a big one ticked off the list for 2018!
