I am requesting the donation of the following colour photographs of pears for display in this section:-

  • Flower - to show the shape and colour of the whole flower.
  • Foliage - to show the shape of the leaf and its colour. If its colour changes in the year, then a picture of each changed colour.
  • Form - to show the natural shape/growth habit of the whole pear. Since the pear is deciduous, then one with foliage and one without.
  • Fruit - to show the shape and colour of the whole fruit produced after it has flowered.
  • Flower Bed - to show the overall effect of a group of pears together, preferably with the names of each of the pears displayed.

Each main photograph will be displayed in a 150 x 150 pixels graphic item. Each thumbnail photograph will be displayed in 50 x 50 pixels graphic item. Freeway allocates 72 pixels per inch. The photographs require to be in JPEG Format and send to Chris Garnons-Williams at 1 Eastmoor Farm Cottages, Moor Street, Rainham, Kent, ME8 8QE England.

Please give the Latin name of the pear and your contact details (It would be preferable that it is either your website or email address rather than your phone number). These will then appear with the relevant photograph. If you happen to be a Nursery, then this link could provide a means for people getting that pear; that they require.

To ensure that the pear blossom is pollinated by the bees, then another pear tree from the same or adjacent flowering group ( Group 1 with Group 1 or 2, Group 2 with Group 1 or Group 3, etc ) should be present within a short distance.
