Fourth Year Growing


We harvest and plant rooted cuttings each spring as Nursery Stocks.

These one year old cuttings are produced annually on high vigour and certified virus free mother beds.  We plant and grow these stocks which then form the basis of our new orchard trees.

Each cutting type has specific vigour characteristics which we match up with the variety and intended soil type of the new planting sites.

In February of each year we begin the process of budding.  This special grafting technique joins the new apple variety to the nursery cutting and is grown on to produce a new tree ready for planting in two years time.
