Dig It! Fruit Trees (13 February 2017)

Dig It! // Gardening & Green Spaces // Feb. 8, 2017

February is an excellent time to plan for fruit trees later this summer. Jan of Jos Frijns & Zonen, a Dutch fruit specialist, has lots of great ideas for growing fruit in small spaces and even in the city. To keep things simple, you can grow dwarf trees in containers, like a Swiss railways wooden box - just line it with a geotextile to keep the wind out, drop in some compost, put it in a sunny position and away you go!
