August maintenance session

A beautiful August afternoon at the Histon and Impington Community Orchard, and lots achieved at the maintenance session. Trees watered and sprayed with organic Aston tree wash. Tree information signs put up. Paths mown. And ragwort removed. Lots of ragwort removed. Thanks to all who came along.

If you’re wondering why we removed the ragwort, it is poisonous to horses and cattle and in the UK is one of five plants named as an injurous weed. Its not illegal to grow the plant but land occupiers can be asked to control it.
