Heeling in fruit trees
This is my 'holding bay' for the bare rooted fruit trees that arrived a few weeks ago. As the orchard extension wasn't closed off then, I had to put the new arrivals in a place where they'd be happy for a while.
It's quite a big tub with holes at the bottom, filled with good compost.
This morning I thought of planting them all, but while taking this picture I got chilled to the bone and decided to wait till the weather fines up a little. It's foggy, windy, cold and generally quite miserable out there at the moment. Let's hope it clears soon.
