What’s been happening this month?

Terminal damage to a wild cherry tree, but what caused it? Find out in this month’s blog.


What a view! But what has it got to do with the Sombrun Forest Garden Project? Find out in the blog.


Remember the coppicing of the Goat Willow (Blog, January 1st, 2021)? New shoots have already started appearing and I will be thinning these to make sure there are plenty of good straight ones.


It’s always nice to see an orchid! This one is Orchis morio or Green-Winged Orchid. The inside of the hood when it opens has delicate green lines which are vibrant when the sun shines through the translucent membrane. This is always an early orchid and has come back in greater numbers this year.
