Clearing the orchard (II)

2nd September 2016

5 of us turned up last night to clear around the last 11 orchard trees. We handpulled all the vegetation from within the triangular frames.

It is interesting to note looking at the original trees that the newer varieties are all doing much better than the old Welsh varieties. The replacement trees we planted this year from Ian Sturrock and Sons are all doing really well. We all agree that the manure and drainage we dug in has also made a big difference this year.

We all agree that the orchard is looking really great and we are hopefully for a good crop next year.

Well done us
