On the ninth day of Christmas my true love sent to me...

...9 plants a-pluggin',


Moors for the Future Partnership's work to re-vegetate the blanket bogs of the Peak District and South Pennines has involved hand planting hundreds of thousands of 'plug plants'. These are small plants of species including bilberry, crowberry, cross-leaved heath, cloudberry, common cottongrass, hare's tail cottongrass, and Sphagnum mosses.

8 Sphagna growing,


7 sites now set up,




6 leaves a-prickling,



5 red deer!



4 hare prints, 



3 lizards,




2 mating toads,


and a bilberry bumblebee!
