5 of us went to task on planting up fruit trees and Christmas trees. All the fruit trees were already a sufficient size and planted in a square shape for an orchard to come to fruitation. Holes of roughly 2 foot were dug in for tree establishment. They were then staked, tied in and wood chip over for stability and weed repressing. Visitors to the weir can enjoy seeing their progression over the following months. The fruit trees stood proud with the river in the background. Good gymers felt satisfied to see an orchard unfold in front of them.

Small Christmas trees were planted in a circular fashion for a different planting style effect and a varied landscape to unfold.

Everyone seemed pleased with thier efforts.
