It’s been hard work and a lot of fun down on the orchard recently. Together with our friends on the allotments, we got involved in the Cambridge Big Dig weekend. We put in a raised bed for some herbs and got busy weeding and tidying. And we’ve also run a course on the ancient art of grafting fruit trees. This is the technique of joining the fruit bearing scion to the rootstock, which gives the height and vigour of the tree. If you would like to learn more about grafting and have a go yourself, then please get in touch and we can run this course again.
