Trees For Life - Preparation - Gravel Mulch

More preparation for planting the seeds for Trees For Life involves washing the gravel.
We are given 1 bag of gravel for each box of seedlings grown.
The gravel needs to be rinsed to wash off the clay that it has in it.
I lined a small metal crate with shadecloth to act as a sieve.
This was filled with four bags of gravel...enough for the first plantings.
I wash the gravel over an area of the garden where the clay will do no harm.
End product clean 'washed' gravel ready for use.
