Make Your Orchard Blossom
Over 15 years, John Hancox has developed a lot of knowledge on the practicalities of growing fruit trees and orchard planting in many contexts, including gardens.
John also has pioneered the development of school and community orchards across Scotland. He is a leading expert in how orchards and fruit trees can have positive benefits, in educational, community, and environmental terms.
We can offer a full service from site visits, planning, supply of trees, and all of the sundries required to establish an orchard. We can also help with pruning and maintaining existing orchards and fruit trees.
Additionally, we offer advice and support on planting orchards for cider making. We can make small scale cider batches.
We love special projects. Whatever your fruit tree requirements are, please get in touch - we will be delighted to help!
We have supported the establishment of quite a number of larger orchard planting projects and restorations of existing orchards.
Site visits as well as planning services are offered to help make the management of an orchard easier.
There is an old orchardist phase that goes, "How the twig is bent, so does it grow". In other words planning really counts.
Establishing an appropriate orchard design, picking good quality trees for the location, and planting the trees well is key to achieving success in the long term.
