Did you nick one, Brian, and snack on it later?
Brian Walbey: No they were still far too small Ray.

Excellent: bet they taste nice too when ripe
Brian Walbey: No doubt they will Chris.
wouldn't you just love to pick and eat one!
Brian Walbey: Yes indeed I would Bill but then so would most other visitors I suppose.
fresh fruit, I love it
Brian Walbey: I like Oranges but sometimes their smell puts me off them a bit.
I would love to be able to grow fruit like this. The green and orange look really good together smile
Brian Walbey: Yes they do don't they Linda. Thanks for your comment.

An orangery without oranges is like my wallet without money.
Brian Walbey: Indeed, I couldn't agree more Chad.
Good series developing here Brian

Lovely colours Brian - do they do a Belton Marmalade?
Brian Walbey: Being the National Trust I wouldn't be surprised Mike, anything to make some money!
That's a healthy looking tree- you guys get enough sunlight up there for citrus? I had no idea!
Brian Walbey: Yes we do get plenty of sunshine Elizabeth, not always in the summer though.

Will they grow into decent eating oranges, I wonder?
Brian Walbey: It would be interesting to go back and see Alan.
They knew what they were doing, didn't they!?
Brian Walbey: Yes they did Tom.
Home made marmalade perhaps smile Excellent colour.
Brian Walbey: Sounds nice to me John.
