An Edible Hedgerow in The Nuttery

The trenching for the new hedge of hazelnuts was done today.  Peter Marshall has also limed the trench and given it a good sprinkle of organic fertilizer.

Next week the seventy five hazelnut trees that are to form this important new feature will arrive from Australian Gourmet Hazelnuts a local Mudgee company.  We have already planted elderberries, damsons, medlars and crabapples behind the line of the hazelnuts making this hedgerow a very productive one indeed.

The dense screen of this edible hedgerow will add to the privacy of The Caretaker's Cottage.  For more on The Caretakers Garden click here
