Thirty six new fruit trees in Barrow’s Style

After the BGS volunteers had left, the apple trees they were going to plant showed up. So we planted them out today. From a weather point of view that turned out well; two days ago we had storm Doris brewing with wind and some lashing rain. Today we could survey the storm damage and plant apples in bright warm February sunshine.

We planted 24 cider apples (Dabinett, Kingston Black, Browns and Sweet Alford) 10 dessert apples and a couple of quince.

New row of cider apple trees all planted thanks (l to r) to Jack, Antonio, & Graham.
