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
