Blossom time in the Orchard
Blossom time in our orchard is a wonderful time of the year, not only because of the sheer beauty of the trees but also it’s importance of the blossoming trees to growth of the apples.
The reason that trees bloom is so that they can attract insects to pollinate them allowing them to produce fruit. Without this process we would not have any fruit and in turn no cider. So, as you can see this is an extremely important time of the year.
Orchards have been important to the community in the past as they were somewhere for the community to come together in time of celebration, as well as promoting fresh produce. They also make our community spaces more pleasant.
