Caring for your fruit trees during establishment and once established, tips, ideas and advice.
Hosting events at YMCA and Foyer centres can pose a variety of challenges as can organising events off site and in the community. In this helpful resource, The Orchard Project shares its wide experience and offers top tips for budgeting, health & safety, promotion etc to help your event go smoothly.
The resource features an example risk assessment for an orchard apple day - very popular in the autumn months.
Fruit trees make fantastic homes for lots of wildlife, although not all of it will be welcome! Keep your eyes open and check your trees regularly for signs of any problems. This is particularly important when the trees are young since an early infestation of diseases and pests can cripple the trees and they won’t establish well.
This comprehensive resource features an at-a-glance identification guide to some common fruit tree and plant problems. Beware...there are many more!
