Caring for your fruit trees during establishment and once established, tips, ideas and advice.
A case study that highlights the support given to a bereaved young couple during the development of an orchard at YMCA North Staffordshire. Hard work and community spirit helped to alleviate the sense of loss felt by all connected to YMCANS.
The information in this care guide is based on YMCA North Staffordshire's experience with creating an orchard as part of the FFC project. They planted 2 year old fruit trees, so Year 1 in the guide is effectively Year 3 in the life of the tree.
With correct after care and maintenance, fruit trees will produce healthy quantities of fruit for everyone to enjoy.
