I have always wanted to plant fruit trees and have a mini orchard. My only issue was the fact that, 1 many fruit trees grow way to big and 2 allot of the varieties don't self pollinate and being new at this I don't want to make the mistake of buying two trees that are not compatible. So with a little of research I found some companies that offer dwarf fruit trees and more importantly these companies have a large variety that self pollinate. Maybe self-pollination is not the way to go, I don't know but for now it's going to be easy to for me to grow self-pollinators than trying to position two trees that need each other. Last year the bees were nowhere to be found so I have become quite apprehensive about getting anything that needs bees. But to the contrary, this year is abounding with all types of honey bees in this early spring. Besides my having a severe phobia of bees, I am looking forward to seeing more honey bees in my garden this year.
