LOVERS can get fruity this Valentine's Day with a gift from the county council.

Worcestershire County Council is offering organic fruit trees for sale in a bid to increase the county's orchard heritage.

Five varieties of apple, two types of pear and two varieties of plum trees are all on sale from £14.50.

Senior community greenspace officer Wade Muggleton said: "This is a great opportunity for people to grow their own little bit of Worcestershire heritage.

"There are some great varieties of fruit trees in the county and it would be a shame if we lost any of them."
