Almost a year ago on the #RHSPodcast, @Zehra_Zaidi told us the remarkable story of John Ystumllyn, an 18th century African who was abducted and brought to North Wales. He became a gardener and the first well-recorded black person of the era to live in that region.

Although other trees nearby can pollinate your apple tree, try and accommodate two compatible trees if possible - we publish a compatibility table here 👉 rhs.org.uk/advice/pdfs/Apple… 🍎 If you want cooking apples but only have space for eating apples, try 'Charles Ross’ or ‘Bardsey’

Green front gardens are not just good for the environment - they've also been proven to have a positive impact on our mental health 💚 Lauriane Chalmin-Pui explains how adding a few plants to your front garden can have the same effect as 8 weekly mindfulness sessions.
