I was up on Pen Trumau yesterday and last year’s spiral of wool is greening well.
With two colleagues we took cotton grass plugs grown by volunteers and a professional grower to plant by way of planning the next trip with a group.
We were amazed at just how many plants came out of the small bundles that I had taken, at least 500 from two trays. Given I trays another 34 trays of plants it looks like there is going to be a great boost to hill from all that effort.
To those unknown growers, well done!
Anyone wanting to help plant do get in touch as I will be going up agin on 18th and 21st June and will send times and directions for meeting by email.
