When to plant?
Health and Safety is key
Take steps to ensure the Health and Safety of you and your planting team. Ensure you have the correct equipment, such as gloves, long-sleeves and a hat. Be aware of your surroundings when planting. Distance yourself from the next person. Take care using equipment such as spades and secateurs and around waterways. Be aware of potential hazards that could result in slips/trips/falls.
Consider a sustainable option
FutureEcology have created environmentally friendly plant guards. Emguards are biodegradable and made from recycled pulp. They stop plastic debris from entering waterways.
