Have you thought about planting an Orchard?
If you are considering planting an orchard, no matter how large or small. We are experienced in tackling large country estate plantings and design as well as cutting edge city fruitscapes. If you are baffled by rootstocks or confused about pollination groups – don’t worry, we are happy to work through all the options with you to find the trees that are best suited to your space and soil type.
So, whether it’s Gala apples for your lunchbox or the heritage ‘Flower of Kent’ cooking apples made famous by Isaac Newton discovering Gravity, we have the trees for you.
Prism Agriculture works closely with ‘Grow at Brogdale’ who hand graft fruit trees from the 4,000 different varieties of fruit in the National Fruit Collection, with rare and heritage varieties being our specialism. This comprises of over 4,000 varieties: around 2,400 apples, 500 pears, 280 cherries, 300 plums + Nuts, Quince, Medlar and Berries). Every tree grafted is a little piece of British history. An established apple tree can expect between 30 – 50kg of fruit per annum.
Prism Agriculture and ‘Grow’ recently established a 400-tree heritage orchard at Dunsfold, Surrey to fit in with listed buildings at the site and create biodiversity. This started with Soil Testing prior to selecting varieties:
Fruit trees add value to the environment. 150 mature fruit trees absorb as much CO2 as a car driving 26,500 miles per year. They also provide shade and a natural habitat for bees and other insects.
