Create your own Garden Orchard
Orchards are really beautiful places, but not many of us have a field sized back garden to plant the orchard that everybody wants. But the good news are that you don’t need a field, because the number of trees officially required to make an orchard is five. It’s time you to create your own garden orchard. We will tell you how to start this landscaping process.
Five trees is a number we can work with no matter how large, or more to the point, how small our space is, because fruit trees grow in plenty of innovative ways. Take stepovers, fan trained fruit trees, or half standards for example. There are a lot of options and these smaller-sized fruit trees are easy to manage.
Always remember the importance of learn how to lime the lawn to make all your additions.
Types of fruit I can grow in my garden
Almost everything you want.
- Grab apples.
- Citrus fruits.
Don’t forget exotic such as prommegranite trees which will grow in shelter parts of the world. Orchards are traditionally fruit based, but there’s no reason to stop there. All you can eat is worth growing, so you can include nuts, berries and currants, too.
Turn your garden into an Orchard
Forget the traditional straight lines of large fruiting trees. There are lots of ways to grow fruit. So it can be incorporated into your existing garden.
- Space in the border.
- Erect a screen.
- Wander up the garden path.
- Against a wall.
- Above the fence line.
- Improve a patio, deck or balcony.
- It’s downhill from here.
- Lawn carings.
- Give welcome to the pollinators.
Make easy this orchard project
Buy a half standard quince and a cherry for the border. Add a row of pleached pear trees above the fence line, and two types of fruit cordons to partition of the fruits. Add a fan-trained apple to the wall and line the path with stepover cooking apples. Also this is a great opportunity to learn gardening with kids with a beautiful landscape project.
