Weekly Blog for Digging Deeside 

12/8/2015

Hello Diggers, 

lynda120815This week we had many donations of plants Claire donated a lovely thorn-less blackberry “Loch Ness” we also received a large verity of plants and 3 bags of Raspberry canes from one of our new volunteers Lynda.  

Jobs carried out this week:  

The plants are doing well thanks to digger Daz coming down to water every day.

After sorting through the donations we got to work on planting the Blackberry’s and Raspberry’s in the in ground plot making sure to make the holes deep enough when planting bare root plants its best to fill the dug hole with water to help the plant recover from being out of the ground and also you then don’t have to re-water after planting.  We also got the rest of the plants in that were propagated 3 weeks ago the plants were Leeks (Allium porrum) and Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare). 

We also had a good feel around the potato plants and got a good harvest of them.

We all had a good time and the weather was just right not to hot but not too cold.

Hope you have enjoyed reading this blog. Rob 🙂
