Field visit to Bronwyn Hunt and Paul Dodgshun plantings
Sunday, April 6th, 12:30pm
Hillview Road, Alexandra, Otago
Treegrowers last visited here in 2010, so come back and see how things have fared.
Some pecans are carrying their first nuts and the young pistachio trees are getting established. We seem to be making progress along the propagation learning curve of both in this climate.
Things to see and discuss: Nursery, irrigation, solar power, apples, compost and mulch, soil fertility, home garden and orchard, pecan and pistachio plantings, shelter belts, chestnuts, chooks, hazels, pests, problems, successes and failures.
Join us for a pot luck / bring your own lunch. We’ll have a meet and mingle and cuppa at 12.30pm or arrive for a look around at 1.30pm if that suits your travel plans better.
Please note that Daylight saving finishes on the previous day.
