Mark Tuson from RHS Wisley donated and helped plant, in early April, 13 heritage apples for local community orchards, with varieties including Major; Pixie; Antonovka; School Master (x4); King of Pippin; Wyken Pippin; Dunn’s Seedling (x2); Cow’s Snout; Bismark. The trees were starting to come into leaf, so they were planted-on late. We hope to leave then in the current potting beds for the spring-summer and plant them on in November once the leaves drop.
Thank-you RHS and Mark For donating the trees. We are currently planning where we can plant them on in winter 2022, the Queen’s Jubilee year!
