Supporters of Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden at South Walsham in the Norfolk Broads backed the next generation of the garden’s trees at a special planting day on Friday, February 21.
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 Garden 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. I would like to thank our friends who planted trees today. However, there is still time to support our appeal,” added Louise Rout. “Donors have until the middle of March to reserve a tree.”
To make a donation and reserve a tree, please call in at visitor reception, or email firstname.lastname@example.org, t. 00 44 (0)1603 270449. Additional tree planting days and times will be arranged.
