Grow Your Own Organic Fruit

There are lots of good reasons to grow your own fruit:

• It's easy. You only need to tend most fruit trees and bushes once a year – apart from picking the delicious produce.

• Your garden will look beautiful. Most garden fruits have attractive blossom in the spring and the ripe fruits are very decorative as well.

• There are fruits to suit any space you have. Some fruit bushes, like strawberries, are very small and you can even grow dwarfing apple trees in a large pot. There are varieties to suit every garden.

• Growing fruit gives structure to your garden space. Train fruit bushes and trees along a fence or wall. Use them to provide height and individual focal points or to divide a garden into different areas.

• You’ll have lots of fresh, delicious and healthy fruit for free.
