During July the stone-fruit at Eashing Cemetery were weeded, with some of the plums crown-lifted, we found several cherries that had escaped the blackbirds and the trees along the Walnut Avenue had their dead-tips pruned back.
Elsewhere, in Haslemere we pruned and tied-back several espalier apple trees, including a School Master planted adjacent to the wall of St. Bartholomew Church, planted by The Den after school club. We spoke to a neighbour who was happy to have these new fruit trees opposite their property, who also showed us an old apple tree in their garden, remnant of a former orchard.
