Winter Planting progress

The winter is a busy time of the year with planting in full swing. The area south of the foot bridge that has had several sprays to get rid of the Glyceria has been planted in Manuka and Carex secta with a few kahikatea. All these should tolerate wet ground.
Eighty seven plants of mixed species have been planted round the pond to fill in the gaps.
Sexton Road end of the gully has had over 500 plants go in at various locations.
That’s a total of 2,350 plants of which 1,450 have been HCC-supplied with the balance having been raised by our group and a few purchased.
