Sophie and Sarah went for a lunchtime tree-shopping spree to LIDL to buy them out of fruit trees for the staff/student plots. 4 apple trees (cox orange), 2 pear trees (conference) and 3 plum trees (victoria). They are only wee little sticks - 1m or so in height - and look pretty dead to the untrained eye. They have been topped, ensuring nice crowns, low enough to pick fruit off in years to come!
