I know it's too late to be planting trees, but they were half price so I couldn't resist.

To add to it this year I ordered 10 common hazel, 1 purple filbert, 1 kentish cob, 1 paper bark birch, 2 cherry plums, morrello cherry and a Stella cherry (I also ordered some more fruiting root stocks). I also moved a couple of flowering cherries I had in pots that I couldn't find a home for down to this area.

I'm hoping it will be come a miniature "forest" garden area, I've also added a gooseberry cutting I had spare, alpine strawberries and a blackcurrant. I will be adding bluebells, wild garlic and other herbs as the trees start to get established. The trouble is I need to fence it off and I've no idea how much space to leave for future growth of this area trees are more of a passion then grass at the moment!
