Growing apples in your garden.
The old adage, ‘An apple a day keeps the doctor away’ is actually extremely true. Apples are rich in antioxidants and fibre, and therefore extremely healthy. At this time of year, apples are ripening and just ready for cooking.
England is famous for its apple trees, with places like Cambridge having walkways of apple trees that are extremely atmospheric.
Growing these in your garden can be extremely pleasurable. But when choosing an apple tree, it’s important to discern which type of apple you want to cook. Crab apples might be easy to grow but they don’t taste sweet. However, they can be used to make things like crab apple jelly. There are around 2,500 varieties of apples but not all are grown in the UK.
A garden designer can not only help you make this choice. They can also help you with cordons, espalier and root stocks. Here at Samantha Willis Garden Design, we have recently planted an avenue of apple trees using historic trees.
