I’ve been thinking of trying a Forest planting for some time now so with the beautiful weather we had yesterday I said today’s the day. I used 5 saplings between two and four feet. I also used a plastic seed tray that I came across a few weeks ago and I use scrimming mesh /plasterers tape with all my trees, its low cost works perfect and the same diameter as the shop bought stuff.
Having got all material to hand I proceeded to mesh the tray and place in more than enough wire (just to be sure).
Next it was time to layer the bottom with the substrate, (cat litter + bark) and position the trees.
I loosely wired the trees for a rough position then added more substrate. I kept all trees as close as I could as there is only 5 and there only saplings.
Here is the end product for the time being, I will let it grow now till next year to get some more foliage on it then start to put some shape into it.
