Although Roachside Cottage is closed due to our local Tier 3 status until mid-January at the earliest, we’re not being idle. This is what several hundred £ worth of new trees look like!

Our aim is to create a copse along the 175 metre length of the garden, filled with native upland species which will help support wildlife. These first plants will be planted shortly and include Goat Willow, Downy Birch, Holly, Rowan, Blackthorn, Hawthorn, Elder, Dog Rose, Hazel & Crab Apple.

They're pretty tiny little things now, but we hope that they'll become our legacy - when we've turned up our toes!

(Providing we get through the pandemic of course....)
