Cherry picking

This year the large cherry tree at the top of The Tasting Garden has had its biggest crop of cherries in living memory. Normally the cherries we have are eaten by the birds before they are ripe for humans.

This year, however, the tree has been smothered in cherries and we and our visitors have enjoyed sampling the fruit.

Chris Wright was present when we picked some of the cherries and has made a short video of us in action. Click on the image below to view the video.

One of our volunteers Candice Chen also took some photographs on the day.
