Plum Orchard planted

The Highfield Helpers have planted 10 plum trees in the newly cleared area near to the apple trees in Hixberry orchard.

Some plum trees were planted about 15 years ago, but the orchard had become overgrown. It was cleared of undergrowth by the Highfield Helpers at the end of last year and today they finished the job by planting a mixture of eating plum varieties.  We will look forward to some blossom and fruit, if not this year then hopefully next!
