The latest news at Trenance
and local events
Richard and Jennifer have been tree planting again this year.
We have planted 10 cider apple trees, with names such as Camelot, Duffin, Stoke Red, Tom Putt etc., in the top field.
Wild Cherry and Bird Cherry in the bottom field - (food for our birds) - , along with Pines and willows for shelter, crab apples, elderberries (Jenniferâ€™s wine),Â and hazel nuts.
150 trees in all!
Along with the Macrocarpa, Pines, Poplars, Italian Elders, willows and Sycamore previously planted, we will soon have our own mini Arboretum!
Jennifer is trying to introduce some wild flowers into our field, starting with Yellow Rattle near
the maze and Ox-Eye daisies round the apple trees. So far they are doing well.
Red Campian is flourishing in the woodland area.
The Great South West Walk starts on Friday 3rd May
In the morning it's Lizard to Mullion Cove and in the afternoon Mullion Cove to Porthleven

Spring is here, so we are all busy outside gardening and painting and getting ready for Easter.
The VisitBritain inspector has been to look at all the cottages and Trenance on the whole.
We are all very delighted at Jennifer's hard work as the Dairy cottage has been upgraded from 3 to 4 stars.
It's pruning time. Many of the shrubs have outgrown their allotted spaces, so Dick & Jennifer have been out with the shears! Spring is on its way as the daffodils are out in force.
The National Trust Gardens are now open.
South West Power have been busy here bringing us a new power line.
We have just planted 300 trees around the perimeter of the lower field.
