OLG's Bushy Point Planting Maintenance
Working Bee at Bushy Point 1-3pm - meet at Bryson Road or wander through and see where we are working.
The plantings carried out on Tree Planting Day last September will be checked first, then we will move on to other areas where some seedlings still need releasing from encroaching grass etc if they are to survive and prosper. Various methods can be used to release the trees and suppress competing grass growth, as will be shown.
Please bring: shoes or gumboots suitable for working in long grass; gardening gloves; clothing suitable for the expected weather conditions; a face mask if you are allergic to dust or grass seeds; safety (or other) glasses to protect eyes when weeding amid tall grass stalks; optionally, a pair of sharp garden shears suitable for cutting grass.
As well as this date we are also returning to Weeding Wednesdays in February and March. Please contact Douglas Black on 022 104 8661 for more information or to find out where we are working on the night.
