DWARF FRUIT TREES
We have a smallish garden but I fancy getting 3 or 4 fruit trees to go in pots.
My husband says you need two trees of a type (say two apples) to help with pollination, even if the tree is classed as self fertile. is this right ?
I actually wanted 1 apple, 1 pear and maybe 1 cherry
Would I be better off just getting two apples and two pears
Not really enough room for 6 and I would imagine cherries are less hardy than the others.
I live near Newcastle upon Tyne in the cold NE.
Any advice would be appreciated
