Open Day at Keepers Nursery 3th Oct 2010

Keepers Fruit Tree Nursery

Keepers Nursery will be holding an open day on Sunday 3rd October 2010. They are inviting you to come and visit their collection of fruit trees. With over 900 different varieties it is probably the largest private collection of fruit trees in the country. Most of the apple and pear trees should have fruit and there will be opportunities for visitors to sample different varieties. You would also be able to get advice on fruit trees but please note that you cannot buy and take away trees at the Open Day as they do not start supplying trees until late November.

There is an entry fee of £5 per car which will be wholly donated to charity. This year the donation will be made to the Disasters Emergency Committee Pakistan Floods Appeal.

Directions
Keepers Nursery, Lower Road, East Farleigh
Maidstone, Kent

    This is an excellent specialist local nursery with a long tradition of producing the finest fruit trees for planting, a bit of a “national treasure” on our doorstep.

    What with the apple day at Ightham Mote, and the fantastic apple events over at Brogdale, with the National Fruit Collection, all coming up soon, now is a really good time to think about growing our own fruit, perhaps planting a small espalier tree trained against a wall this November if there isn’t much room for any thing else in the garden!
