If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, you can keep 40 different doctors away after you visit the National Trust's annual Heritage Apple Tree Sale at Rippon Lea House & Gardens.
When is an orange actually an apple? When it's a highly sought after "Cox's Orange" apple, of course! An amazing variety of shapes, colours, and flavours awaits you; from the buttery richness of "Ribston Pippin", to the tang of "Pine Golden Pippin", there's not one bad apple to spoil the barrel in this selection.
All trees have been grafted on-site by the Trust's gardening team onto rootstocks well suited to home gardens. The gardening team will be on hand to offer advice on growing a great crop at your own home.
Quit mulling it over and book Sunday, 16 March in your calendar; it's free entry to the sale, and you're very welcome to stay and enjoy the grounds and gardens while you're there (I hate to upset the apple cart, but entry fees to the mansion do apply). Bookings not required.
