FAVERSHAM FRUIT CHARITY FEATURED ON NATIONAL TV
Brogdale Collections, appeared on nationwide television in early May, featuring on BBC’s Gardeners World.
Presenter Carol Klein presented an item about cherry trees and blossoms filmed at Brogdale’s orchards located just outside Faversham.
She looked at many aspects of growing and enjoying cherry trees; studied some of the different varieties grown at Brogdale; advised on appropriate trees for different garden sizes and gave hints and tips on how to care for them.
Brogdale houses the National Fruit Collection, which is set in 150 acres and is home to the largest temperate fruit collection in the world, with over 4,000 varieties of fruit trees. The Collection represents the living history and heritage of growing fruit.
Sara Smile, Operations Manager at Brogdale, says: “One of the key objections of the Brogdale Collections Charity is to provide education about fruit trees and growing to the general public. So, we were delighted that Carol was able to use our stunning blossom orchards to share her love and knowledge of cherry trees with the public.”
