Rowan and Crab Apple on the Milton Garden Estate

The Rowan trees and Crab apples are looking great this year (apart from in QE Olympic park where Rowan seems not to be thriving). This planting of trees must have been intentional – with Rowan and Crab apple almost alternating along Howard Road on the Milton garden estate.


Most of the recipes I have come across for Rowan jelly require the addition of crab apple, or other apples, to add pectin, and make the jelly tastier.
