Apples for all: wildlife and us

We are having a good year for apples and hope you will come and enjoy them with us, on Sunday, at our Apples and Bees Day. We have a good picking of Bramleys for sale and volunteers have taken some for jellies, mincemeat and cakes for the Open Day. Visitors will be able to make apple juice with the Friends of Cressing Temple and to ID apples with volunteers from the East of England Apples and Orchards Project. And children will be able to make apple bird feeders. But there are still plenty for the butterflies and bees to enjoy and for our first picking for cider making in October.

We have been working hard to ensure the Gardens look good for the Open Day: deadheading and pruning; grasscutting and border edging. In the warm sunshine this week it was a delight! And our veg are still thriving, refreshed by the recent rain, and available for sale.
