Collecting the trees
The trees were collected from a nearby plant nursery today. Wrapped up snuggly, they travelled the short journey to the Edible Medley garden on site at Tatton.Jazz watering the trees
There are two different trees in my garden: two Prunus avium 'Burlat' trees and one large Ficus carica which is currently fruiting and looking lovely with its slightly contorted branches. Both produce edible fruits in this country.Fig anyone?
The Ficus carica is a broad tree with low branches which will keep the eye in the garden. Its huge palmate leaves contrast well with the pointed leaves of the Prunus avium and it forms a strong focal point within the centre of the garden.The water rill taking shape
The water rill is being built out of marine ply and waterproofed using a 'rubberised paint' which forms the waterproof coating (instead of using a liner). The stone is then laid on top of this layer within the wooden structure, hiding it completely from view. Today was the first day we could really appreciate the shapes within the space and it is really beginning to look like a lovely garden!
