    I've been subscribed for a while, but over the last few days I've decided to re-wild the scrappy lawn (approx 1500 sq metres).
    I'm actually in the south of France, the summers are long and scorching and the winters are usually wet with occasional sub-zero.
    So, I'll be following this project with great interest.

    Really looking forward to seeing how this develops! I don't think Doulgas Fir is native to the UK though. I grew up in the Pacific NW of the US which is their native range and they grow to be absolutely massive!. You'll have a truly impressive tree given your space. Cheers.

    I’m addicted to your videos. Wish you were closer, My plan is to turn my ‘new house’ turned back garden into a productive edible garden with a natural area to encourage wildlife.

  • Vivien Arnold

    Really looking forward to following this project. I would love to know your reasons for choosing which trees. I have got a wildlife section in my garden with 8 trees, 3 of them mature oaks and one scots pine. The rest are arbutus and ornamental cherries. Unfortunately I have a large infestation of bramble at the moment I am trying to deal with because of a lack of attention for a few years.

    Can't wait for the next instalment Lee! In comparison to your acreage, I have a pocket handkerchief!! I recently had a lovely Philadelphus which I'd had for about 30 years, die off. I was sawing down the stumps as far as I could but noticed a honeysuckle has taken root below it. So the stumps are about 4 ft high and ready to accommodate the honeysuckle. Take care and keep safe Lee.
