Fruit trees, sweet tasting gardening tips
Fruit trees add another dimension to gardening. There are many types from which to choose, some dwarf varieties may even be grown in small pots/planters, so there is really no excuse not to grow fruit in your garden or even on the balcony. Here are some Espalier grown Apple and Pear trees, which have been specially trained to encourage a more distinctive form with heavy cropping potential.
Fruiting trees in the garden are more than just another plant, they look particularly beautiful when covered with scented blossoms in Spring and of course with ripened fruit in late summer or early Autumn. They also encourage nature in the garden, just watch and admire the bees buzzing from blossom to blossom. Children are fascinated to see the full development cycle from the early budding, colourful blossoms and of course the development of the fruit. There is hardly a more dynamic and impressive way to witness the seasons in any garden.
This Espaliered Pear tree is compact, self polinating and easy to manage.
Dwarf espaliered Apple trees are also ideal for growing in patio planters
There is nothing more exciting in the garden than growing your own fruit
A larger fruit tree and one which is certainly also an impressive focal point is of course the Fig tree. Like many fruit trees best planted in a sunny position, and yes, fresh home grown figs are simply delicious.
The Fig tree is a very elegant fruit tree for any garden
