Jane's Meadow Fruitful Hedge

CWaCS is participating in the Tree Council's 'Hedgerow Harvest' initiative.  Working with the Parish Council, in November 2011 we planted and now maintain a 'fruitful hedge' along the west side of Janes Meadow in the upper recreation ground.  Species planted include:

  • Gooseberry
  • Redcurrant
  • Apple
  • Pear
  • Crab-apple
  • Cherry
  • Sloe (Blackthorn)
  • Damson
  • Hawthorn
  • Greengage
  • Hazel
  • Quince
  • Raspberry
  • Rowan
  • Walnut

Most have already produced fruit for picking by village residents.  CWaCS carries out periodic maintenance on the hedge, including weeding, mulching and pruning.

The fruiful hedge also includes the elm sapling received from the Elm Tree Reintroduction Project.
