Apple Day at Stow Hall Gardens

The Biennial Apple Day & Produce Show

Stow Hall Gardens opened its gates to a record 2,100 people when it held its biennial Apple Day and Autumn Show.

The harvest-themed event raised nearly £3,000 for the Norfolk Wildlife Trust and Holy Trinity Church.

Organiser, Lady Rose Hare said: “I think its the most we’ve ever raised. We had the most people weve ever had in the gardens, it was fantastic.”

The East of England Apples and Orchards Project invited visitors to bring their own apples for identification.

Martin Skipper, project manager said: “We had at least a dozen samples of apple that were unidentifiable, we will be sending these off for classification.”

There were also 50 varieties of apples grown at Stow Hall Gardens on sale to the public.

Lady Hare added: “The weather was fantastic, we ran out of everything, and because it was so hot the apple juice was even more popular than usual.

“There was a very good woodturner selling his own creations, a gentleman who was selling lovely walking sticks and even a produce show selling harvest cakes, chutneys and jams which was hugely successful.”

The day was organised by head gardener, Justin Garry, Angela Turner, Lady Rose Hare and Wendy Langston.
