The first was in the next village to ours, I had done some work for the gentleman late last year and discovered a mutual love of apples. His orchard is only about 3 years old but he was more than happy to help and walked me round a on drizzly evening to cut a few branches off.

|The second orchard I visited - I love walking round a place like this and hearing the stories about the different types of apples.|
What does everyone think - should I try 25 grafts this year or buy 10 more for cider as well?
