This is the time of year for bare root planting of trees and bushes, planting winter bedding plants, being cruel to be kind with the trimming of bushes,moving / dividing plants around, annual cuting of wild flower areas, removing hard to get at blown non biodegradable plastic from under bushes and hedges (it’s about time that 25c is put on every plastic bottle, can , coffee cup etc so that they have a value) and countless other jobs…..
planning the next projects with St Kierans TY tidytowns
