The Friends of the Storey Gardens have commissioned the first two new fruit sculptures.
The first sculpture will be the Czar plum funded by the Friends of Storey Gardens themselves. The second will be the Swan’s Egg pear funded by Lancaster City Council.
The fruits will be carved in Portland stone by local sculptor Alan Ward. The sculptures will be installed on new plinths.
The existing plinth for the Czar plum sculpture has already been removed. See a separate blog post for a few photographs of this happening.
