The season of abundance is upon us once again!

Saturday, 7 July 2018

This week we began to harvest our apricots, jostaberries, and redcurrants. Our apricot trees, planted in our Forest Garden, are varieties that do well in northern Europe - namely Flavourcot, Tomcot and Orange Summer. It's the first of these that has had a bumper crop this year, also our most mature tree. These new cultivars have been bred to flower later than traditional varieties and therefore usually escape the late frosts that so often blight apricots in the UK.

Today another bunch of willing employees from local building components company Crane, joined our Garden Club regulars to tame the weeds in the Forest Garden ready for our Open Day on Sunday. Luckily they had good weather and really seemed to enjoy their morning. Well done guys and thank you!

We hope to see you and your families on Sunday when we host our Open Day, Bake Off and Fun Dog Show on Ransom's Rec.
