'Tis the season that most people may be planting trees

The tree planting season is traditionally Samhain to Imbolc, early November to early February, in the Northern Hemisphere. This is known as the 'dormant season' during the tree cycle. But, us humans are usually last minute with things, and the bulk of the seasonal tree planted gets done late February and through March. Ireland's Tree Week starts 21st March this year and though that will be celebrated online this year, a lot of outdoor planting will be happening. 

Bare Root Tree Planting means buying and planting trees without being supplied in soil and pots. Its a lot less cheaper to buy tree plants that way, and a lot less cumbersome. Commercial tree planting is done with bare root plants known as 'whips'.

This Sunday Sessions is the first of four tree themed Sessions for March that combines Tree folklore with practical hands on activity that can be wise to do now. Its a good time for establishing new hedging too. 

Along with Spring Tree Planting stories I hope the weather will be kind enough for me to roam around with camera and demonstrate myself planting a couple of bare root Hazel plants, symbolic of wisdom, in gaps still existing in our Tree Labyrinth Garden
