A new course set for April 29th 2017: Planning and Planting a New Orchard.

Hot on the heels of our Pruning Apple and Pear Trees Course at Trill Farm in February, we will be running another course with the excellent Landbase to be held at Monkton Wyld, near Axminster, East Devon.

This 1 day course will put you on the right path to planting an orchard of healthy and productive fruit trees suitable for your location and needs. Led by fruit tree specialist Tom Nancarrow from Pip & Stone Fruit Tree Services and Adam’s Apples, the course covers topics such as choosing the best site, understanding pollination, selecting a rootstock, the best varieties, potential yields, when to plant, how to protect trees from rabbits/sheep/deer.
