Blossom Day

This event is one of the annual open days while the orchard of heritage and rare local varieties of apples, plums, pears, hazels and damsons are in bloom.
It’s an opportunity to enjoy the sights and scents of a traditional orchard. It has been maintained by Wirral Tree Wardens, Wirral Wildlife and friends as a resource to encourage community orchards and offer free swapping of orchard skills – pruning, grafting, harvesting, cooking and juice-making.
