Powys Orchard project bears fruit
"Growing Fruit in Powys" is out now
The report contains the results of the Powys Orchard survey, which was conducted in response to the demand for knowledge on fruit growing in Powys. In 2009 and 2010 we surveyed 22 orchards and gathered the experiences of fruit growers from all over the county.
We hope the report will enable future orchardists to make more informed decisions - by learning from those who are already growing fruit in our locality. Please take a look, and spread the word to anyone you know with an interest in growing fruit.
The report includes -
Details of the survey and results Advice on planning your orchard Recommended apple, pear and plum varieties for Powys Case studies of real people and their orchards Information on grants for planting fruit trees Advice on earning an income from fruit growing A comprehensive list of resources
Many thanks to Glasu who funded the project.
