My job for today was to do a clean up on this Hawthorn.
The soil surface was covered with all sorts of rubbish from over Winter.
The trunk was covered in moss.
After the clean up.
Soil surface much tidier.
The trunk cleaned up with soapy water and a brush.
I have also coated the deadwood with tree gum to help preserve it, when this dries I will coat it with Lime sulpher.
