“Spring in St Anns Heritage Gardens”

Spring is in the air; our fruit trees are in blossom, birds are singing, and our gardens our humming with activity. To celebrate the season we invite you to the green lung of St Anns on Sunday 16th May 2010 between 11am and 4pm for walks, talks, workshops, chatting, eating, ambling, sitting and enjoying.

STAA Heritage Officer, Mo Cooper, says “I love this time of year, the gardens come alive – hundreds of gardeners and community groups beavering away, planting their seeds, feeling the earth come to life. Our fruit trees are full of blossom, so we’ve high hopes for another bumper year of apples and pears. We hope both old and new friends will come to our open day and see how much progress we’ve made on the site. Our partners Ecoworks and Urban Nature are keeping the spirit of Greenweeks alive by putting on some exciting activities for our open day.”

2,000 rootstocks planted Heritage Fruit Tree Project Update

The Heritage Fruit Tree Project  is progressing well with  2,000 rootstocks planted!

 Many thanks to the volunteers who helped us plant; we couldn’t have done it without you.

 The planting has been spread over two plots, one for the apples and Pyrus Communis rootstock and the other for the 550 Pears on Quince.

 Preparation has taken many months, with the main plot needing 6 skips to clear the huge amount of rubbish found.

 Next step is to bud the trees in August with the help of Frank P Matthews Nursery in Tenbury Wells.

 In the meantime, we are holding regular volunteer days to help keep the trees weed free. The next is on Friday the 30th April; meet at Ransom Rd gates at 9.15am.

Any enquiries please call STAA on 0115 9110207.
