This photo shows visitors being shown round the Fruitery during our wildlife weekend. The Fruitery was designed and developed using the principles of Permaculture. The aim is to work with nature, by using suitable companion planting, to produce a low maintenance, sustainable but productive garden. Instead of using weedkiller, we use mulches and 'green manure'. Instead of using hosepipes and watering timers, we use the shade of trees to reduce plants' need for water.
