Harvesting apples and pears at RHS Garden Wisley - Jim Arbury

We are now in the middle of harvest for apples and pears. Harvest is about 10 days later than in recent years due to later than average spring. It is an excellent harvest with fruit trees cropping well in orchards and gardens and the roadside seedling trees all appear to be cropping heavily. Roadside trees are often growing by bus stops or sections of road where there are often traffic jams and cores have been thrown from car windows.
