Orchard thrives despite wet weather
The Loddington Diamond Jubilee Orchard is thriving despite the wet weather. The trees although planted in freezing temperature in February enjoyed dry weather in March and damp conditions through the spring and early summer. The pictures show newly erected sheep guards and and a rare sunny Loddington evening!!
Individual sheep guards allow grazing near to tree base
