High Leas hedge planting phase 2

Pupils from Lythe School joined Mulgrave Estate staff for a further hedge planting session on Friday afternoon. The dedicated Lythe school hedge is now complete – all 118 metres of it. A mixture of Hawthorn, Blackthorn, Hazel, Holly and Crab Apple were planted at 7 plants per metre. Rabbit spirals and canes were added to protect the hedge until it is fully established.

Thanks again to Mr Stansfield, staff and all the children from the school – you all did a marvellous job and we all look forward to seeing it growing in the spring.
