REQUIRES – money to buy saplings, a largish garden (e.g. room to plant a few trees) and time to create and maintain.
HOW TO – This American website contains general information about creating your own beautiful orchard.
CONSIDERATIONS – This is perhaps only worth attempting in a house you intend to inhabit for awhile, otherwise you might miss out on that delicious fruit. Usually fruit trees are bought as very small plants and it could take a few years for them to start producing fruit.
HOW DOES THIS HELP – Bees can pollinate the early Spring blossom of fruit trees and find habitat. Plus orchards are great for other types of wildlife too.
BONUS REWARD – juicy home grown fruit for you, your neighbours and the wildlife!
FURTHER INFO – To learn more visit The London Orchard Project, they have a great resources page.
