Cheap fruit trees
Last week we discovered that Groundwork North East has lots of fruit trees being sold cheaply at their nursery at Lobley Hill, Gateshead, just down the road from us. On Saturday we paid them a visit and bought four apple and two plum trees for £18, ie £3 each. We often pay more than £20 for a tree. What a bargain! The trees are now planted on the far side allotment.
