Landscape Advice Note: Fruit and Historic Sites

Front cover for Landscape Advice Note: Fruit and Historic Sites

By Russell Williams

Many historic sites have fruit trees and other fruit plants, that contribute visually and in other ways to the sites in which they are growing. Some sites may have traditional fruit trees, that are over 100 years old. At some historic sites the fruit is cultivated both on the walls and within the garden, using traditional Victorian techniques.

This Landscape Advice aims to outline the benefits that can be obtained through fruit production and how this can be incorporated into the management of a historic site.
