I ordered four fruit trees this year, and we planted them a few weeks ago. I chose pixie crunch apple, sundance apple, honeysweet pear (which is self-pollinating) and a trugold peach. I am not sure if the peach needs a partner or not, but I am hoping to order more fruit trees next year anyhow, so I will get it a friend then.
Hopefully they will do well. Years ago my grandfather sent me two apple trees, and moles ate the roots. I still wish they had survived, and get sad thinking about them. We have outside cats on duty now, so that should help with the mole issue.
Readers, do you have any fruit trees?
