A Little About Us
We grow all our trees using agroforestry and permaculture principles and are certified organic by the Soil Association. The key to growing healthy trees is to have healthy soil. Our soil is fed by a range of green manures composted on-site and fed right back into the soil. This means we don’t need to apply artificial chemical fertilisers to keep our trees happy.
We are in conversion to Organic. The trees we sell from November 2020 will be certified Organic by the Soil Association.
A routine spray programme comprising organic seaweed extract and garlic oil is carried out throughout the growing season to help with pest and disease resistance as well as to promote strong healthy growth.

We run grafting courses from the nursery in February and March. Tom is available to run pruning and grafting courses for community groups, allotment societies and schools/colleges.
These courses run in the winter, from November to March.
