Seed Gathering Season

Kids love collecting conkers and acorns (where do they put them all?!).

Get them involved in The Tree Council’s Seed Gathering Season, from 23 September to 23 October. It’s a great time to explore your local woods or parks, and gather seeds, nuts and fruit that could grow into the next generation of trees, shrubs and hedgerows.

Visit their webpage (here) to find lots of practical information about how to identify trees and collect seeds, process and prepare them for growing, and sow and plant them out.

There’s a really nice young person’s guide available to download too!
