What’s been happening this month?

Do you know this plant? It looks like something out of Jurassic Park, and indeed it does have prehistoric origins. It is very useful and contains a lot of minerals. It re-appeared in the Forest Garden in February and features in the blog.

An interesting-looking fungus, it is in fact the fruiting body of the White Rot Fungus, and appeared in no time in the heap of manure I got in to put round the new trees planted over the winter. Full details in this month’s blog.

Biomass is another important tool in forest garden development, and I have added three piles this month in the Upper Garden. They will help develop mycelial networks and encourage insects. Read more in the blog.
