A second Russet Tree

Until now we knew of only one surviving old Wareham Russet tree, in a garden off Tower Lane.

However as a result of the Trust giving us a page 1 spot in the Weaverham News, a lady has phoned to say that her garden used to be part of one of the original orchards, and she has a large Wareham Russet tree in her back garden off West Rd.  She also offered to let us take scions. ( Scions are cuttings taken from branches; to propagate apple trees you graft these on to rootstock from another variety of apple ).
