John Debbage, one of the gardening team at Fairhaven, has established a nursery in the garden to propagate saplings. Oak, ash, alder and horse chestnuts have been grown from seed gathered in the garden, for planting in a copse at the end of the Ranworth Walk.

Louise Rout, Fairhaven Garden manager explained:  “We began working on the copse in February and this is our second set of planting days. We are asking our friends and supporters to donate £10 to the garden’s project fund in return for planting a tree.  Numbers of trees are limited, so please get in touch and reserve one. We will maintain a record of all donations, so that donors can keep an eye on their tree as it matures.”

To reserve a tree and make a donation, please call in at visitor reception, or  t. 01603 270449. Alternative tree planting days and times can be arranged.
