Drainage and even more drainage

Due to the unseasonal weather we have had to give extra thought to drainage in the trial field to try to prevent it from flooding to much we have had a ditch put in thta runs down the side of the old passage way this will prevent any rainwater from simply going into the trial field as it now has to go into the ditch,

We also had a ditch put in the far side of the field to catch the runoff water and to prevent the water from backing up into the field, pics to follow

Planting this year we are going to experiment with planting the trees on mounds in an extra attempt to try to get them higher than the runoff water which we could get in the field, more on this later in the year
