River Corner (East)
This corner of the garden...
is quiet and currently more neglected than the upper slopes of the garden. Across the river is a meadow, belonging to another property where you can sometimes see a horse or some goats.
This is where we have recently planted two new willow trees and a dozen willow cuttings. We have also removed much of the dense regrowth sprouting from a fallen Western Red Cedar to open up the space around a crowded Oak tree.
In the spring and summer we aim to tackle the Himalayan Balsam that seems to be gradually taking over this corner before planting a range of new trees next winter.
