Hedge planting in Sidmouth aids Bloom contest
Volunteers from Sidmouth in Bloom and the BEE Project plant hedging at The Byes
HAPPY volunteers from Sidmouth in Bloom and the BEE Project, are seen here planting hedging saplings in The Byes to help improve habitat and food supply for wildlife.
Elder, Blackthorn, and Bird Cherry were planted along a wall in Sid Meadow.
The planting helps celebrate Sidmouth in Bloom’s continued effort for the RHS 2011 Britain in Bloom competition and also celebrated the International Year of Forests 2011.
Michael Horsnell of the BEE project said: “Young and old all helped with the planting, watering in and fitting with protective sleeves. As the years go by another lovely wildlife habitat will grow up in The Byes.”
