Orchard Pruning and Bundle Making

We got all twenty of our maturing Chinbrook Meadows apple trees pruned today with the help of our London Orchard Project mentor, Alona.

      

The trees are looking healthy and strong. All four varieties; James Grieve, Spartan, Charles Ross and Egremont Russet are doing well with good buds forming for the year ahead. We hope to have plenty to admire and enjoy on our Apple Day in October.

Eddie showed us how to use sisal with slip knots to gather our branch bundles together neatly when we had finished.
