Lets get making our streets and estates into urban orchard for everyone to have free fresh food!

Please no more trees guys.

  One of the reasons why I started asking for donations was because so many people were offering me trees. They still do offer me trees all the time and its just impossible for me to accept, plant and look after them all. My slogan has always been from day one. "I challenge you to phantom plant a tree"! And yesterday when I went to the orchard there was another load of trees dropped off. Please please guys I can't take trees as donations. I know its such a nice gesture but I get attached to these trees and I dont have tine to be planting them this time of year and to water and after and look after them. Thiis is a massive choir for me. I have thousands of my own trees to look after, hundred of baby oak trees and hundreds of baby native apple trees also. No matter where I am and I see a tree in need of water I will go and get water for it. Dropping off loads of trees in this hot weather in pots they will need water lots and it vreally plays on my head the thought of

Some early morning apple tree stashing!

 I've stashed some things in the past but I've never stashed fruit trees for phantom planting before! Hiding my trees for phantom planting later today. Got some Buddha Beds  orders to do then will be phantom planting some memorial apple trees later today. Thats how I like my days, living in symbiosis with mother nature. Eveything we use and sell comes from nature and I believe all of us need to return something.  We cant point the finger at anyone while we are all consuming and not returning.  Completely karmic free souls disappear ino the higher heavenly realms anyway!    So while we are all running around in this earth school realm, we all got karmic debt to sort.  Its a personal thing between you and the creation. Thats my belief anyway.  Om mani padme hum.  #buddhabeds #communityspirit #phantomplanter

Never forget about your trees!

 Just as I needed to water lots of potted fruit trees we phantom planted in that sunny spell of weather we got, Indra - God of the rain came to the rescue! The Buddha says it was with earnest efforts and vigilance that Indra became god of all gods and its with earnest efforts and vigilance I watch over my trees. Cheers Indra, you've saved me a lot of running around this week. Moral of the story. We make our own merit in life.  I believe we have a merit bank account, bad actions get us in debt, good actions make the soul rich. I bankrupted mine in the past. Getting that sorted now though.   I will never forget about the trees I phantom plant! What I do though in really hot weather is I skip my morning rituals and head out around the trees that need watered. It's so important not to forget about potted fruit trees this time of year. Bare root trees planted in winter will be ok most of the time. But potted really need watered every week with about 10 litres of water. I skip gym da

One of my favorite phantom planting stories.

 Here's a story why no tree that I've ever phantom planted was a waste of time, not even the ones that have been destroyed!!! Around 7 years ago I met this old man one day at the garage who is 87 today struggling to put air in his tyres, I offered to help him and me being me I couldn't shut up about the Buddha, yoga, trees and how it changed my life! He thought I had told him that I was into judo so he got home and decided to try and find me by contacting judo clubs in Belfast looking for a tree planting Buddhist, he had no luck! Around about that time I had a fruit tree planting charity and a tree of mine got cut down and the stump discarded over a hedge and the rest of the tree must have been shredded, I was devastated at this and went to the papers with the story! My old mate was sitting reading the paper one day and there was me in the paper holding my decapitated tree stump! He contacted the paper to get my details and we have become best friends ever since, I see him

First Buddha Beds Tree Phantom Planted!

Image
 Phantom planted my first apple tree yesterday to mark the first sale from Buddha Beds! This tree was planted in memory of Patrick and Rose Henry who was the parents of the guy who first bought a mattress from Buddha beds. The apple tree was a Laxton Superb variety and the location to the tree has been added to the phantom planters tree map for the family to maybe go and visit one day and for all you guys too if you ever fancy some apples. The tree has been marked on the map as a Buddha Beds tree.

First Buddha Beds Tree bought!

 I said to the guy who ordered the first mattress from my new Buddha Beds page that I just launched last week that seeing he was my first order I would phantom plant a memorial apple tree for him in memory of a passed loved one. I went yesterday and picked out this massive Laxton Superb apple tree and will be getting it phantom planted this Sunday for him. I've also said that for every mattress sold I will be phantom planting a tree but they wont be the size of this. I couldn't afford to be phantom planting ones this size but I will be planting a small sapling tree or berry bush that one day will grow into a tree this size in the pic. I've sold a few more mattresses this week so have some berry bushes to plant this Sunday also. I'm going to try and come up with a way so I can send each mattress customer back a location and pic of the tree planted. Obviously the best time of year to be planting trees is winter so I could save the details and email them back when winter c
