Various Seed Collecting Events, November 2023

Whilst in reality seed collecting started in August with Bird cherry and hazel, most of the seed collecting happened in October and November and Canopy 2050 volunteers got together on various different days and in different places to collect seeds.

Over the years the best seed collecting sites in our local area have been identified for each of the tree types, alder in Attenborough nature reserve down by the river, hornbeam in the Hetley Pearson recreation ground and common buckthorn on the Bramcote Ridge for example.
