Willow Planting

With special thanks to the Mrs Lathe and the students at Eyemouth High School who cut bundles of willow for us, we now have a lovely willow windbreak.

The wind can be really fierce on this very exposed site so the willow will serve to disrupt the wind flow and protect the plants. The community growers will keep the willow cut short and coppiced (great biofuel by the way) as we don’t want big trees, just a willow hedge. Who know, there’ll maybe a chance do do some willow weaving in the next year or so!
