體驗簡介

(Please note that I run 3 Apples Expert courses: introduction (all year), whip n tongue grafting in March, and crossing / breeding in May.)

Tour the orchard, the cordon lines and the nurseries. Discuss principles of growing apples and other top fruit. See cordons, step-overs, espaliers, ballerinas, standards. Discuss sources of scion wood and rootstocks, and see rootstocks being grown. See a family tree with three varieties. See pears grafted onto hawthorn.

Apples don’t come true from seed – so, planting a pip will result in an apple tree but only a new ‘wilding’ variety.

Whip ‘n’ tongue grafting
To create a new tree of the SAME variety a scion (a cutting of new growth) needs to be attached to a rootstock. Watch a demonstration and practise on surplus material.

Crossing / breeding
To create a tree of a NEW variety two known varieties of apple can be crossed. This can create a new tasty cultivar. Watch a demonstration of the process of hand pollination by using flowers available at the time. (The principles are identical to apple blossom.) Practise.

Take away cribsheets.

Leave course with knowledge of principles of grafting and crossing, and be able to experiment at home.
Other things to note
Great walking from the door in the Peak District National Park. You are welcome to leave your car before/after.

I have been growing fruit for 15 years and my passion is apples. I have developed an orchard of over 50 varieties of apples, pears and plums. Grown in many different forms: step-overs, espaliers, cordons, ballerinas and standards. I graft (whip ‘n’ tongue) all my own trees, and have experimented with apple crossing (creating a new variety). I am in the Northern Fruit Group.

I have been running tours at Farlands for 5 years, but only recently on Airbnb.

James was great, knowing loads about apples, pears and plums and sharing the information really well. The small holding is in a fantastic location, with fantastic views of the Kinder river.
