Our heartfelt thanks, as ever, to everyone who volunteered and helped enthusiastically in the planting of fruit trees at Osterley Lock and Elthorne Waterside last week!
The group was so enthusiastic, in fact, that more trees than originally planned ended up in the soil at Osterley Lock, and fewer than planned were planted in the Elthorne Waterside terrace behind the “Bambi” statue.
We are happy to report 18 new fruit trees in total, 17 of which were planted at Osterley Lock, including Medlar, Pear, Apple, Plum, Quince and Black Mulberry. We can’t wait to see them come into bloom and fruit!
We are now evaluating and deciding whether to acquire more trees or postpone the filling-in on that terrace.
