Hubby and I are thinking about purchasing 2 fruit trees, now I know that you need 2 for polination for the to produce fruit. BUT does it have 2 be 2 of the same tree
Im quite partial to a cherry tree and hubby would like a plum tree!!
or can you have 2 different aslong as they are the same type ie: lemon and lime trees (not that I would have these but them being both citrus

thanks and sorry to ask again

you will find that the pollinator will also have to be in the same pollination group, not neccessarily the same tree.

hi
as these are in containers you can plant them all year round, but i prefer the autumn while the ground is still warm and the rush of summer has passed.
