Birch Plant Supports
The coppiced birch cut down in January, see blog entry for the 22nd 'Coppicing At The Harcourt Arboretum', was delivered to the college a few weeks ago. This week Ali and Simon have been making the plant supports from the birch. Still pliable after 3 months they carefully weave the pieces together to create sturdy structures that will support the plants as they grow. New this year are decorative pieces made of willow, two spheres and a flower created by Ali on a recent willow weaving course.
