They have been doing this for quite a long time. Lucky really. This is our 4th tree in as many years - already have an apple, plum and pear. Not entirely sure where this one will go! 🍐🍎🍆😂 @pelly

You should do! 😂 I'm sure I read they had been doing it for about 15 years. They sometimes give out seeds too at the same time but I didn't get those this year @pelly

It's West Lancashire District Council. They let you know in the local paper when to apply, which you do online. This year we could choose Bramley apple or Plum. A few weeks later they email to say if you have been successful. We have had one each time we've applied. We pick them up from a local garden centre. You have to live in the district & the tree has to be planted in the district. If you need any more info, let me know. Good luck ☺ @pelly
