Habitats - The Orchard
The life within the tree...
In Blossom...
The fruit of the tree

During the mild spring weather, small buds begin to swell on the twigs of the apple tree
Food for the birds
Bullfinches and other birds like to peck off the buds, which are bursting into flower
Pollination
Bees visit the apple blossom to collect nectar. They take pollen from one flower to another and help tiny apples to form
The fruit
