Aaaaah, that's wonderful, tagwex......think of the beautiful blossom and sloes that will enhance the countryside.....all thanks to you.


OK Sive I'll do it this week!!!!!!!!! My conscience wont let it pass me by.

Isn't it great though that you can dream about your little oaks being around for centuries and knowing that you did your part in giving them life. One to be proud of. Well done. We have one oak here, about 4m tall.

Don't waste your time trying to transplant them. I tried to transplant about twenty blackthorn trees a couple of years ago. All but a couple failed. Then I read this:
"Some species transplant easily - others, such as gorse, holly and blackthorn do not transplant well and are best sown on site or moved to their final site as very small seedlings."

See page 53 of

Ahh now that's a pity. I have a mini digger and was going to take up a few at a time as they are so close together with a scoop of earth hopefully with the roots largely intact and just drop them in a pre-made hole. The blackthorns are no more than the size of my little finger and 1.5m at most in height. I couldn't open your attachment my potatoes.

It seems this form's software is having a problem with the inverted comma in the URL.
You'll need to copy and paste the entire URL into a new window, from the http... to the pdf.

Or just google:

The trees I transplanted were about knee height. I did it in December; some were bare-rooted and some had root balls (of sorts). The time between being dug and being replanted was less than four hours.
