This time of year our local nurseries sell off their last bare root fruit trees before the weather gets too warm. You can pick up fruit trees for 30-50% cheaper than usual and it's the time that I always buy my trees.
This year I have a new house and lots of sunny corners in the yard to fill so I've gone and bought six new trees. All the basics, a pear, apple, nashi pear, plums and one I'm super excited about; a fig tree.
Needless to say, I'll be working the garden spade hard this week to dig all the holes but it will be well worth it. If you have a spare yard corner and fancy a tree laden with fresh produce then hop to it, now is the time to buy.
