Highlights included apple tasting, apple identification and advice on what to grow, and how to plant and prune for a bumper crop.

There were also chocolates and artisan cheeses for sale, as well as tours, live music, pop-up food trucks and craft stalls.

A spokesperson for the garden said: “We had a lovely day and were very grateful that the weather stayed fine for it.

"We were really busy and it seemed that everybody was having a lovely day out.

“We had apple-related family activities in our schools’ garden and we had a member of our team doing pop-up science so that people could find out about some of the science and research that’s going on at the university.”
