The event itself though turned out to be a couple of stall selling appley products, honey etc…. And a LOAD of tables with every imaginable apple laid out….. Mmmmmm….. No photography allowed inside either!! Grrrr….. However there was one little stall located close to the entrance to the marquee. Dolau-Hirion fruit trees. The gentleman on the stall was a font of apple tree knowledge and listened carefully to our landscape description and advised us on types, root stock and types suitable for hill growing in west Wales. He is based at Llandeilo so we shall most definitely be paying him a visit!!
