    In your video above, do you plant 4 semi-dwarf trees in one hole, or 4 standard size trees? Assuming one plants 4 trees in a single hole and would prune the trees to the same height regardless of the trees' natural size, will the standard size tree yield more fruit than a semi-dwarf tree?

    Isn't there an issue with disease formation as well as transmission when planting so close together?

    Thank you

    Tom, really great videos! I have two different semi-dwarf pears: Conference and Williams bon de Chretien). The maximum planting distance i have vailable at the desired location is only 10ft. Is it better to plant them 10 ft apart, or plant them both in the same hole? Thanks a million…

    Hi, my names James, I live in Miami, FL . USDA 9-10
    —————–

    Being in Miami Florida, I know mango's, avocado, and lychee grow very well.

    So one thought was to plant condo mango's in one cluster, next cluster avocado, and the third cluster lychee. All three of these tree's have potential to be very tall and wide, do you think they could be managed and fruit bearing with the high density method? I didn't see mango and or lychee on the web site.

    Nice concept for back yard orchards, i did this for my fruit trees for the last 12 years didn't realize it was OK to do this, i just wanted as many verities as i could stuff in a limited space. i thought it was of poor judgment on my part to stuff trees in tight proximity, but had no other option. your project has made my day!

    "Height". The word doesn't end with "th".

    I really would like to plant fruit trees so close, primarily plum. Is it advisable, should I be looking for a specific rootstock? I am in Scotland with an acre of land which has a few old plum trees but they are dying off. I am also interested in growing blueberries in pots.

    @johnlvs2run

    Thank you for that information. The more that I learn about fig tress and the durability and uniqueness of them the more that I am convinced that I need to know more. Your feedback which is much appreciated has spurred more creative thought.
    Thank you!

    @figgardener You can lay a fig tree down, and grow a hedge from it.

    I planted a couple of Fig trees very close together and have had a wonderful experience. Really appreciated this info!

    These would be awesome for the urban setting huh? Very excited to try something like this. Planted a cherry, apricot, two plums and a pear tree, hopefully they all make it past their first winter!
