New Fruit Trees
Not usually one for buying stuff off the TV but today I was drawn to a special offer on Ideal World (gardenbargains).
The offer was £39.99 for 4 self-fertile miniture/patio fruit trees (Braeburn apple, Conference pear, victoria plum and cherry) that also included 4 very large containers to grown them in and a box of Fish Blood and Bone.
I’m so looking forward to getting them home and watching them grow, they said on the TV that although I will get fruit in the first year it’ll take 3-5 years to fully mature. As yet I haven’t decided whether or not to leave them in the containers (and remember to water them!!!) or to plant them in the garden. Will they need full sun or can I plant them in the North East facing part of the garden than gets the sun from early morning until 2pm(ish) – after that the sun disappears round the front of the house??
I can’t wait to enjoy some home grown fruit, hopefully it’ll save me a fortune in the long run :)
I’ll post pics when I get them all potted up!
