The harvest is in, and it’s time to contemplate what to do with that housefull of apples, and to make tentative plans for the new season. Keith Cowling calmly takes us through how to tackle an overgrown patch of ground, and for those who like to cultivate together, we also have news from Bristol’s growing community supported agriculture schemes.

This issue also brings details of up-coming Christmas fairs and markets. Why not support these, and make yours a Bristol Independent Christmas?
