Axel’s slice of Paradise!

The tour of Axel’s garden and orchard was very informative. He is growing an amazing variety of plants, closely spaced and multi-grafted, allowing him to trial a great many different fruits. Axel is a scientist as well as a gardener/orchardist, so he puts a great deal of thought into what he does. Of course this also makes his garden a continual work in progress because there is always something to tweak it a little further. For example, the apple trees will be trained to espalier form to allow better management!

It was a real pleasure to be able to tour, and if Axel offers again, be sure to attend!
