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 firstname.lastname@example.org, t. 01603 270449. Alternative tree planting days and times can be arranged.
