In the last Update I said that we had taken delivery of about 6,000 baby flax plants. It ended up being just over 7,000, so that’s a good start.

And for those who have done some planting over the winter, now is the time you should be getting onto releasing the plants you have put in the ground. If you don’t get to it before the end of the month, there is a risk of plants being lost. Best you check and see.
