A Little About Us
We grow all our trees using agroforestry and permaculture principles and closely follow organic standards. We are in conversion to Organic. The trees we sell from November 2020 will be certified Organic by the Soil Association.
The key to growing healthy trees is to have a 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.
A routine spray programme comprising organic seaweed extract, bio fertilisers 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.
In our orchard, the trees are grown in many different forms such as bush, half standard, espalier and cordons. For anyone wanting to get an understanding of how to grow different tree forms, a visit to the nursery can help with this learning process.
It is from this collection of Shropshire and Welsh Border varieties that we take our cuttings to create new trees.
