Bringing heritage fruit trees back to the Capital

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:25 pm on 5 September 2016

The Wellington region has a smattering of very old fruit trees, with rare varities of plums, apples and pears.

Under a new heritage fruit tree programme, cuttings taken from some of these trees have been grafted and made available to churches around the city, and the fruit will be available to anyone who wants it

Wellington City Council's Urban Agriculturalist, Sarah Adams explains what is involved.
