Community Heritage Orchard Planting – 12th Jan 2014

As well as being a commercial concern, traditional orchards are also very important habitats supporting a wide variety of species. Sadly they are now few and far between. We have planted a selection of heritage fruit varies grown on vigorous rootstock to produce large trees very unlike the modern dwarf trees grown in the orchards of today. The trees will take some years to mature but once grown out they will provide lots of delicious fruit as well as visual and very valuable habitat enhancement.
