Trees arrive


My fruit trees arrived on Thursday. I’d got five canes of Autumn Bliss raspberries


A Bramley 20 M26 (that’s a Bramley clone 20, less vigorous than a normal Bramley and a root ball that limits natural growth to 2.5-3.0m to fit in with the rest of the trees)


Japanese wineberry. Never had one of these…


And a really big fruiting blackberry. To replace the ones that didn’t really fruit in our garden!

There is also a grape vine, but that’s more of a stick at the moment…

Eight down, three to go!


Finally finished the tree planting session. I have to admit when my wife first bought the trees in march, I thought I’d have them in in a month. Well technically they were “in” but they didn’t fair very well as it was only temporary as we pulled out the conifers. When the local garden centre started to sell up stock due to an impending closure, and all three trees we’d bought almost lost all their leaves due to our haphazard watering scheme it really put the pressure on to get them in!

So here we are – all eight in, well manured and staked (most the lidl fruit trees were at 70′ rather than 90′!) now just to choose the final three!
