St Ann's Hospital, N15 3TH
Come and look at the beautiful trees growing in the grounds of St Ann’s Hospital, focusing in particular on the very rare service trees (Sorbus domestica). Known as ‘sorbs’ these trees have small fruit that must be bletted before eating. There are not many of these growing in London and this is one of the largest collections in the UK. We will collect some scion wood for grafting onto rootstocks, later in the spring which will help make sure there are more of these lovely trees available to plant around London. The grafting day will take place on Sunday 17th March at Edible Landscapes London. More details here.
Meeting point: Chestnut Café, N15 5RP at 9.45 (or by the entrance gate to the hospital if the café is closed).
This event is taking place in partnership with the community-led StART, St Ann’s Redevelopment Trust and the local Mental Health Trust.
