Spring is knocking at the door. Now is the time when lovers of the pretty home garden should think about what to plant in it this year.

If you have chosen to plant fruit trees, there are 3 main things to consider in order for your orchard to be productive.

1. Fruit trees can be productive and decorative

Think about what the purpose of your garden will be - do you expect fruit from it or will you plant the fruit trees just for beauty.

If you want your fruit trees to grow bearing fruit in a small space (if you don't have a spacious yard), choose small varieties. You will save time because these varieties grow faster and reach maturity in a shorter period of time.

Suitable for garden cultivation are apples, pears, peaches, apricots and citrus fruits.

2. Fruit trees can be complicated to grow in an orchard

If fruit production is your main goal, then you should know that fruit trees should be pruned every time they bear fruit. After harvesting, trim the branches.

Always remove old, broken and diseased branches if you want your trees to be productive next year.

3. Before buying a fruit tree to plant, check if this variety requires a pollinator

Many fruit trees only bear fruit if there is another variety nearby to provide cross-pollination. The easiest way to cross-pollinate is if there are two kinds of trees nearby.
