The Orchard

Here's how we prepared the holes for the fruit trees. The holes are about 600mm wide and about 400mm deep. We filled them with a mix of grass-clippings, liquidamber baubles, vegetable scraps, blood-and-bone, ash and dolomite powder: photograph
And in July 09 we planted the first 6 trees, one pear one Gala apple, one Granny Smith apple, one peach, one cherry and one nectarine: photograph
