Bonnington Tree Nursery

Filed under News
Date posted: Wednesday, 22 April 2015

Down at the Falls of Clyde, Scottish Wildlife Trust staff and volunteers have been gathering seeds and seedlings to grow on in the raised beds of Bonnington tree nursery. With the kind permission of Mid Lodge, the tree nursery has been established for over 10 years in the Lodge’s front garden with the job of producing native trees and shrubs for planting out on the wildlife reserves and for other local projects. The native species are best for wildlife and help improve habitats for insects, birds, mammals and woodland plants.

The most recent batch of trees to be re-homed (including rowan, hazel, willow, holly and bird cherry) have gone to 3 sites in the Clyde Valley including the CAVLP supported project at the Alexander Hamilton Memorial Park and one site in Midlothian. More seeds and seedlings have been planted this spring and should be ready in the next year or two.
