Last week pupils from Rogart Primary School visited Little Assynt Tree Nursery on a research mission! They are starting their own tree nursery and were having a look at how we do things at Little Assynt. The budding horticulturists learned about all the stages in growing trees and got hands on transplanting Juniper and Scots Pine seedlings and taking Aspen cuttings. We explored Culag Wood where the pupils collected Wych Elm seed and looked at the effects of deer on trees and seedlings. They also became bees and flowers as they learned about pollination and buzzed around on white shore!
