Fruit trees for Valentine's Day offer from Council
An apple
On offer are Worcester Pearmain, Tupstones, King Coffee, and others

An unusual Valentine's gift, that can help preserve historic local apple varieties, is being offered by Worcestershire County Council.

The Fruit Trees Scheme gives people an alternative to the traditional bunch of flowers.

The county's famous orchards have dramatically reduced in number.

The council is also running a special course on Wednesday, 3 March, to help anyone unsure how to get the best out of their gifts.

The 'All you need to know about fruit trees' course is being held at the Worcester Woods Country Park.

It runs from 1000 to 1530 GMT and costs £15 per person.

For more information about the scheme, the training day, or to purchase a tree, call 01905 766493, email or visit
