I braved the garage yesterday to tidy up a few more trees for Winter. Weather has well and truly gone to pot. Last night saw our first snow here.
The Hornbeam was still holding on to a few leaves but this was soon sorted out.
After leaf removal.
Another important step was to remove the moss to stop pests hiding there. I removed it from the Hornbeam and found quite a few leather jackets lurking there. No wonder the Blackbirds where showing so much interest!
The white stuff is Mycellium which I was surprised to see so much of on a Hornbeam.
This was the tree before placement in the poly tunnel for Winter.
