Fruit trees in Albion Court

Albion Court is a small green square between High Town Road and Wenlock Street. In the corner, right at the bottom of Cross Street, is a raised brick planter that wasn’t getting much love. This was the state of it when Edible High Town took it on:

After the heroic efforts of our gardeners and community volunteers, the rubbish has been cleared out and the shrubs cut away. With the patch clear, in December we were able to plant four dwarfing fruit trees in the space, making a mini-orchard. Two apple and two pear trees have gone in, with plans for herbs, vegetables and ground cover plants filling in the rest of the space in the spring.

There’s not much to see there are the moment, just a muddy square and some twiggy saplings, but watch this space…
