The completion of the first of two major steps in the creation of a National Orchard Inventory for Scotland is reported here. It has been over a century since the last comprehensive national orchard survey was carried out.
This first step is a detailed deskstudy using a geographical information system together with diverse other sources of data. Also reported is the pilot carried out in the Scottish Borders for the second step which is Field Verification by volunteer survey.
The report is launched on Friday 30th May 2014 at the Gardening Scotland event, Royal Highland Showground, Ingliston. Come and see us there Stand 187 in the Living Garden zone, and perhaps try some lovely Scottish cider !
