Teaching Gardens – Dewhurst

Dewhurst Road Allotments, Huddersfield

This is an established site with an area approximately equivalent to 8 standard allotment plots.  We are establishing a reference orchard of apple cultivars and have, so far, around 50 different apple varieties.  These have all been grafted from scion wood obtained from reference collections at Brogdale and Wisley so that we can be certain that each cultivar is true to type.

We also have a wide selection of other fruit trees and many varieties of soft fruit.
