SummaryPlanting of hedging saplings to fill spaces in hedge at the perimeter of the allotment boundary
The hedging plants can be slotted into slits made by a normal spade, there is no need to dig holes and refill. Please bring your own spade and gloves if you can. With 8 volunteers we can do it in 3 hours.
We are currently managing a biodiversity improvement project on the Duxford Allotment site, and since April 2023, we have installed 28 trees and shrubs, 9 bird boxes and 20 metres of “dead hedge” to create various additional habitats for wildlife around the Allotments.
We are now coming to the final phase of this project which is to install a 45 metre section of hedge plants at the boundary fence. We planned this for the end of February, as this is the best time to plant a hedge (and when the nettles are absent!).
