After much deliberation we have finally ordered the fruit trees for the front garden. Unable to find exactly what we wanted locally we bought online from two different nurseries.
From Reads Nursery we have ordered a 2 year old bush Conference pear and a 2 year old bush Apricot Goldcott
From Victoriana Nursery Gardens we have ordered Apples Devonshire Quarrenden , Sunset & Winston
Also a pear Doyenne du Comice
All are container grown so should arrive soon and can go in straight away. Once in, we can plant the bulbs and sow the grass seeds, hopefully in time for it to be established before the winter ( the grass sown in the pig's pen is coming through nicely with the help of the recent rain ).
Next we have to decide on the soft fruits we would like.
