Winter Fruit Pruning Workshop
The workshop was led by Kate Robinson – Community Garden Coordinator, Jam Yesterday Jam Tomorrow.
The event was very well attended, with approximately 30 plotholders present. We started with the apple and pear trees on Bob Trevillion’s plot and then, after a coffee break, we went to look at the soft fruit on Jenny Bourne’s plot.
Thanks to Kate’s clear explanations and demonstrations we all learned a great deal. Click here for the notes. and click here for the pictures from the day.
Local supplier of pick'n'mix seed potatoes
Plotholders may be interested to know that Chapmans of Twickenham are selling a good range of loose seed potatoes. This allows customers to pick’n‘mix the different varieties rather than having to have 1 or 2 kg of a single variety.
