Dan's finally ordered the first batch of apple trees for the orchard - 69 of them. They are a mixture of dessert and cookers, about 12 varieties, I think. They are all early fruiters, since they will be at the far end of the orchard. The next block will be mid season and the third block, late fruiters.

Rabbit guards and tree ties also ordered - stakes will come from Coventry Fencing, since they are the best price we've found.

All we need to know now is when they are coming so that we can set aside time to plant them.

Nice one! Where did you get them from? Everyone I've tried lately has either sold out by now, or doesn't get back to me!

I ordered them from Adam's Apples - http://www.talatonplants.co.uk/

Since we were ordering 69 trees we got a great discount and the price worked out at about £7.50 per tree delivered.

I'm hoping to write up the planning, fencing and tree selection articles next week.

Thanks Dan, that was just the incentive I needed to get on with it and place an order!! :-)
