Back the next generation of Fairhaven Garden trees on Friday, February 21

John Debbage
Friends and supporters of Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden at South Walsham in the Norfolk Broads are being invited to back the next generation of the garden’s trees at a special planting day on Friday, February 21, starting at 11am.

John Debbage, one of the gardening team at Fairhaven, has established a nursery in the garden to propagate saplings. More than 80 oak, ash, alder and horse chestnuts, grown from seed gathered in the garden, are ready for planting in a copse at the end of the Ranworth Walk.

Louise Rout, Fairhaven manager explained:  “We are asking our friends and supporters to donate £10 to the garden’s project fund in return for planting a tree.  We will maintain a record of all tree donations, so that donors can keep an eye on their tree as it matures.”

To make a donation, please call in at visitor reception, or email  enquiries@fairhavengarden.co.uk, t. 01603 270449. Alternative tree planting days and times can be arranged.
