Pick some­thing un­usual

The People's Friend - - Gardening -

It’s time to pick ap­ples, along with quinces, damsons, med­lars and sloes. It’s also the best time to plant new trees.

If you’re think­ing of adding a small fruit tree to your gar­den, why not try an un­usual her­itage va­ri­ety? Grow at Brog­dale (home of the Na­tional Fruit Col­lec­tion), www. brog­da­le­on­line.co.uk, spe­cialises in rare fruit trees in­clud­ing quince, dam­son and med­lar.

To grow sloes, buy black­thorn from the Wood­land Trust (www. wood­landtrust.org.uk).
