New Trees for the Allotment

Layton Permanent Allotment Association were awarded a variety of trees, donated by The Woodland Trust.

Using the links between the Association and local primary school, Layton Primary School, a party of twenty children and teachers were invited to the allotment to plant the trees.

Silver Birch were planted along the entrance to the nature reserve area on the allotment, Wild Cherry and Rowan trees were then planted around the dyke and nature reserve area of the site.

The pupils then signed labels for each of the trees they planted and attached to their trees.

Two of the pupils, Eleanor and  Ruby, who are already well versed in ‘growing your own’, work on plots with their parents as members of the Association.  were on hand to give their class mates information and advice.

Eleanor and Ruby were a great help in this project.

The children were given seed packets from our local Wilkinsons store

to help them make a start in this project.

All really enjoyed their visit and were very keen to return in the Spring to see how their trees were progressing.

Layton Allotments look forward to having Layton Primary’s return visit.

Many thanks to Layton Primary and their pupils for their help in getting this tree project successfully planted.
