Seed Gathering Season Begins

Grow the Hedges of the Future

As the nights draw in it’s tempting to hunker inside – but this is the best time of year to explore your local woods or nearest park, and gather the seeds, nuts and fruits that will grow to become the next generation of life-giving trees, shrubs and hedgerows.

The Autumn Equinox is the official start of The Tree Council’s Seed Gathering Season. Over the next month, we’ll be running online masterclasses and sharing practical information around how to identity trees and collect seeds; process and prepare them for growing, and then sow and plant them out.

Seed gathering is fun, free and easy. Wherever you live, whatever your age, you can get involved. You don’t need to be a hedge expert or have any special equipment – just a love of trees and nature and lots of enthusiasm!
