The Orchard is flourished once again this year, with most trees bearing fruit, supplying our highly successful Apple Day in October. The trees have now grown significantly, and most are well above head height. The hundreds of daffodil bulbs planted last autumn were a great success this year.
Sadly, the crocus bulbs we planted in hope of encouraging pollinators were all eaten by the rabbits but, undeterred, we have now set 2,000 miniature daffodil bulbs for 2018! We have also planted two new Victoria plum trees to expand our repertoire.
