Sponsor a memorial tree at Packwood

The memorial trees in the orchard at Packwood

Following on from the success of the memorial trees in the orchard the garden team at Packwood have planted 21 trees in the meadow area on the edge of the carpark.

For the past twelve years in the garden at Packwood we have offered our visitors a chance to sponsor a fruit tree from our orchard. It has given our supporters an opportunity to either mark an event or remember the passing of a loved one. This has proved very popular and now all of the seventy six fruit trees have been sponsored.

The garden team have recently acquired an area of meadow on the edge of our car park that we intend to use as a ‘Wildlife Corridor’. In this green strip we have planted many semi-ornamental trees such as varieties of; Rowan, Hawthorn and Crab apple.

We have chosen these beautiful trees because they provide; nectar rich flowers, stunning autumn colour and an abundance of fruit and berries which will provide a winter larder for different birds and small mammals. We have also planted snowdrops and daffodils under the trees and intend to manage parts of the meadow corridor for wildflowers which will encourage more butterflies and insects to the area.
