Mulching the orchard ( part 2 )

Barrow of Daphne No2

Finally got round to putting strimmed grass around the trees in the orchard. Next job is to cover the grass with a mulch of manure. Our manure of choice is Daphne No2!. Daphne is our donkey, in case you did’nt already know!.

Job done!

The benefits of mulching are keeping down weeds, builds up the topsoil as it rots down, retains moisture and improves the ground!.
