Community Orchard workday

There are around 50 fruit trees in the Millfields Community Orchard which is in South Millfields, stretching from behind the lock-keepers cottage to behind the electricity sub-station. On Saturday 22nd May we will be repairing and replacing the guards around the trees.

We will be starting at 11.00 and expect to finish around 14.00. If you would like to join us please contact chair@millfieldsusers.org.uk or trees@treemusketeers.org.uk. You may want to wear stout shoes or boots and bring your own gardening or work gloves.

Tree watering in Millfields Park

From now on until the end of the summer we will be watering the trees planted in the winter of 2020/21 and those planted the previous year. Newly planted trees need about 30 litres of water a week in the growing season and it’s almost impossible to over-water trees in parks. If you would like to join one of our watering groups please contact chair@millfieldsusers.org.uk or trees@treemusketeers.org.uk.
