Abundance grafting

Last Saturday two Abundance members went along to South Lakeland Orchard Group’s grafting workshop at Growing Well.

Our first grafted apple trees

In the 2 hour workshop we had a lively grafting demonstration

from Hilary ‘the apple lady’ Wilson and managed to graft 8 trees, 4 were Scotch Bridget – a hardy cooking apple withstanding drought, harsh winters and poor summers therefore very suitable for our local climate. The other 4 were Duke of Devonshire, a  dessert apple raised at Holker Hall in 1835.

These trees are going to be used in our exciting new Abundance project. If you would like to get involved in Abundance events please contact tsl.abundance@gmail.com or ring Lorna on 01539 822165.
