Tie a yellow ribbon …

Red rag tied to the trunk of an apple tree

Ribbon showing a tree has been adopted

It’s time to adopt a tree. Our fruit trees need a bit of extra nurturing as we head out of summer so adopt one or two and water them every time you come to the garden. Just tie a piece of rag around a branch so everyone knows it’s ‘yours’.

Two people for each tree would be ideal. If you see a tree with two rags tied to it, you know it’s already taken care of – there are plenty of trees to choose from.

Give your tree a good soak when you come – about the equivalent of four buckets of water – and watch it grow!
