It’s happening now! Today! Get yourselves down to Three Hares to help with protecting our young trees with deer guards and weeding the base of the trees to stop growth competition.
Also, a shout out to get in touch if you know anything about a mycelium tea that is a less labour intensive way to remove the grasses etc from the base of newly planted trees. We are keen to use this method so email firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help.
Mulch mats like this are cool! https://www.chimneysheep.co.uk/product/jute-tree-spat-mulch-mats/
Bit pricey, maybe could DIY something cheaper…it’s shearing season, so might be able to get a load of fleece from a farmer (often given away!) to use instead
