Orchard drop in days: Thinning the crop

Location: Acorn Bank Garden and Watermill, Temple Sowerby, Penrith, CA10 1SP

Date: 13 July 2019

Pop in for a chat with our orchard experts while they work away thinning the apple crop. A chance to gain insight and advice on how to care for your own apple trees. 

Apple trees tend to turn out as much fruit as possible in their endeavour to reproduce. The resulting fruit can be rather small and misshapen unless we remove a proportion of the apples, allowing those left to grow to their full potential and ripen evenly. Join us for a casual chat or to simply observe how our orchard team care for our apple trees
