New Orchard in the Making

We always planned a ‘loose’ orchard for Cwtch Cabins of traditional native fruit trees. We have tried to use as many really local species as possible. 29 fruit trees are planned in all but with the piles of topsoil still on the ground and more to come I could only plant 22 this dormant season where I know that they will be safe from disruption. The trees came bareroot from Walcot Nursery https://walcotnursery.co.uk/product/king-charles-pearmain/ We will be going for the rest of the fruit trees and the 51 other native trees on the plan in November time. Meanwhile, I love our babies. I have also transplanted some native wild daffodils, bluebells and snowdrops from our hedge bases to the feet of the new trees.
