February 2018

During the end of January and February I started planting them into the ground. To start with I used a pick axe and shovel and planted them to the surface of the soil, but it was very tough going and I very quickly just removed a circle of the turf, removed the Eucalyptus seedling from the poly pot and placed it into the shallow hole, and packed the turf around it.

By the end of February I had them all planted, and had made a start on digging out the foundations for the new poly tunnels; I now had the bug so to speak.
