October Newsletter

Oops, the October Newsletter hit a bit of a glitch, and will be a few days late, but it should be arriving in members’ mail boxes soon.

Not surprisingly at this time of the year, there’s lots of information about apples and orchards, and what to do with your surplus fruit. Anne Lee explains some of the mysteries of apple identification, James Ellson plans to name a new apple after his long-suffering wife, and there’s more information on how to breed a new cultivar. Plums also get a look-in, with Chris Simmonds following her bizarre method of dealing with pear midge (July Newsletter) with an equally curious remedy for the wretched plum moth. We take a look at two exciting compost items, tea bags and snake eggs, and at the introduction of exotic tropical fruits in the eighteenth century.

So there’s plenty there to amuse and inform as the nights draw in and you can relax a little.
