  • Fairhaven Garden's Ancient King Oak's Crown Gets a Trim

    Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden's ancient King Oak, believed to have been a sapling at the time of the Battle of Hastings and one of the oldest trees in Norfolk, has been given a 'trim' to ensure it's long-term health.

    Four years ago, the King Oak's crown was suffering from die-back and was reduced in size to help stabilise the tree. The path was also moved away from the garden's champion tree to give it more breathing space. Visitors' feet were compacting the roots and suffocating the tree.

    Matt Jordan, Fairhaven Garden's Head Forester explained: “We give the King Oak an annual health-check, along with regular visual inspections, looking for broken limbs and aggressive fungi. The tree has survived so long, because it was actively pollarded for many centuries and also grew next to a good supply of water. More recently, it has also responded well to the footpath being moved away from it's root system.”

  • Fairhaven Gardening Team Embarks on Annual Leaf Collection and Recycling Project

    Fairhaven Woodland Water Garden's gardeners and volunteers have embarked on their major winter leaf collection and dyke clearance project.

    The gardening team collects all the autumn's fallen leaves, which are then deposited in retaining bays where they gradually rot and are recycled into nature's fertiliser – leaf soil. The leaf soil is put to work in the garden and is also sold in the plant sales area.

    Ian Guest, Head Gardener, Fairhaven Woodland and Water Garden explained: “The leaf collection is an important annual job. Fairhaven has always been managed organically and the resulting leaf soil provides a rich fertiliser for the garden.”
