Thanks to some generous funding from The Tree Council, PeCAN offered free native hedging plants to East Hampshire residents looking to replace a fence or add a new hedgerow to their garden. Incredibly, these have all been snapped up, meaning 2.7km of hedging will be distributed across the district!
Hedges are great additions to our gardens – they provide acoustic barriers, capture air pollution, help with flood mitigation, offer food and shelter for wildlife and add interesting shape and texture within the garden.
Pre-ordered fruit trees and hedging plants will be available for collection from Petersfield Community Garden at a morning ‘Hedge Fest’ event on Saturday 24th February. This will include free workshops on how to plant and raise trees and hedging plants, how to prune, and how to sow wildflower seeds. There will also be activities for children, and you will be able to check out the brand new traditionally built Eco Shelter!
This is a free event – anyone is welcome to attend to find out more.
