Reed Cutting
This years cutting programme on the common is almost complete. And as we’re into some really good clean reed, I’ve bundled some up for the spring workshops. Thatchers need reed that’s one year or two year old (traditionally called single and double wale) However our rotation cycle is much longer (generally four years) but it’s still good for construction. In a couple of weeks I hope to be cutting some soft rush, juncus effusus, which will provide a more pliable material to use with the reed.
