Welcome to the 'ORCHARD'
« : September 25, 2014, 12:04:49 AM »
Here is a new board for all those members who have, or who wish to have, a corner of their plot or garden dedicated to fruit growing, whether it's a single apple tree, half a dozen raspberry canes or a full blown orchard!

Fruit growing gives a fantastic work to produce ratio. Unlike vegetables fruit require a lot less input, but give huge returns over a prolonged period. It's a very rewarding aspect of gardening, especially when you start to take an interest in old heritage varieties and rare breeds of fruit that are disappearing at an alarming rate.

Click HERE to kick off with a 'Gardening Wisdoms' fact-file that deals with fruit tree grafting. Enjoy!

Thanks Dave. You don't need to remember too much mate - as long as you don't forget where you left your computer & browser link to the Shed!
