The Forest Garden starts to take shape.

Rows of top fruit trees and soft fruit bushes interspersed with 3m wide strips of mulch mat form the basis of our Forest Garden design. The mulch mat will be down for a year or so to kill off grasses and weeds, we will then take it up and establish our ground cover plants. The trees and fruit rows run north to south to make the most of the sun and prevent too much shading.

Some of the mulch mat had worked loose in the recent storms and with another on the way tomorrow, I had to brave the hail and sideways rain to re-bury sections of it.
