Orchard

In January 2012 I planted a small orchard here.  After much research, I chose the following trees:

Apples (all on MM106 except Sunset M9)
Allington Pippin
Braddicks NonPareil
Bramley’s Seedling
Kidds Orange Red
Lord Lambourn
Netwton Wonder
Rev W Wilks
Scrumptious
Spartan
Sunset

Pears
Beurre Hardy (on Quince A)
Beth (on Pyrodwarf)

Plums / greengages (all on St Julien A)
Ariel
Greengage (0ld)
Merryweather
Oullin’s gage
Victoria

Other
Medlar – Iranian
Fig – Brown Turkey
Quince – Isfahan
Mulberry – Chelsea (King James)

All the trees were supplied by Keeper’s Nursery of Kent, and I must say that they were all excellent plants and they have all thrived.

NB These are not stock photos: they show our actual trees, taken Autumn 2014, ie about a year and a half after planting.

I will update again in Autumn 2015 with details of how each tree is getting on.
