Growing interest

Interest in Orchards and fruit trees has been growing in Nairn in recent years with new orchards established at the Sandown Allotments, with the Green Hive in Viewfield and with Nairn schools planting too. Many individuals have also planted trees in their own gardens in Nairn and beyond with trees that have been grown locally by the Nairn Allotments Orchard Group.

There have been training workshops at Sandown where pruning and grafting and other orchard skills have been taught to others and a body of knowledge is now available for the future.
