A Forest Garden - Record of Progress / Coffee Grounds in the garden

Planting Apple Trees in Autumn

Five more dwarf apple trees to join the Gala and Pink Lady:

  • Golden Delicious
  • Jonathan
  • McIntosh
  • Snow
  • Tsugaru

Golden Delicious, Jonathan, McIntosh, Snow and Tsugaru

Will keep track of my new friends to harvest time, hopefully in 2 short years. To be planted over a thick base of vermicast; quality worm poo created by the power of coffee grounds.

This brings the number of apple trees in my yard to 7 now, the forest garden is getting serious…

So why so many apple trees? They are low maintenance, easy to maintain, easy to train to shape, the dwarfs only get to 2.5 meters, and they make apples!!
