Hedge planting in the rain

On Sunday a group of plucky volunteers began planting hedges (young whips in this case) along the upper stretch of Cox’s Walk. The rain arrived just in time and soaked the workers suitably for the hour and a half it took to plant 300 of the hedges. We planted a mixture of hazel, hawthorn, field maple, guelder rose, crab apple, spindle and buckthorn. Thanks to every who came along and willingly got themselves muddy. Here are some photos:
