Fruit trees delivered
This morning the fruit trees we ordered, late on Sunday afternoon, from Victoriana Nursery Gardens arrived.
They were extremely well packed. I now have enough straw to keep the chickens in nesting material for 6 months or more ! and as far as I can tell are fine. Fruit trees aren't my department but to my eye they look healthy and a good shape, certainly better than any we looked at locally. As soon as the others arrive we can plant them.
Some of the trees are on a root stock for shallow rooting and will need permanent staking. We chose these as they will be planted in a garden that has been created above a supporting wall and a garage that has been dug into the hillside, so has limited soil depth.
The front garden looks as if though it's finally taking shape....just the house left to do now !!!
