    Hi! I was so looking forward to getting a fruit tree tour or a garden tour! 😞

    I like your presentation however you could grow a standard tree and keep it at 4 or 5 ft tall the rest of its life. Are you aware of this?

    I usually watch you on a different profile on Roku, where I'm subbed & have given you lots of thumbs ups. But we can't comment there (it only has four arrows & an ok button, so, no) so I just subbed & thumbs upped on this profile too-you get double perks out of me! For my money you have some of the best all around helpful vids on a variety of subjects on this site.

    One question on growing trees with trunks intertwined: would that work well for two of the smaller (grow to about 10-30 feet) fig trees? And could you talk more about how you did this before? I don't know if you have an old vid of it I could watch, or-? Your imagination & research are really impressive!

    I'm on my second year of growing fruit trees and blue berries in containers. Getting fruit sets this year already. Have been told by nursery owners I would not be able to get much fruit, but container garden books say different. Will wait and see. Using very heavy mulch to keep from drying out and a simple cheap DIY/PVC irrigation system running down the top of the pots. Pots are 55 gal barrels cut in half. Love your videos.

    Grafting apple trees is super easy! I've had lots of success grafting apple trees, but zero success with cherry, peach, apricot. Look for Kuffel Creek Apple Nursery videos on YouTube to learn how to graft apple trees. Stay away from bud/chip grafting – it's WAY too slow to begin growing the new tree as the bud doesn't even begin growing until next year! If I recall the name correctly, Cleft grafting is the best method – my grafted scions begin to grow leaves within two weeks time and a month or two later it's already grown entire branches.

    I highly recommend a Braeburn apple tree if you don't have space or money to plant multiple varieties. Braeburn is one of the few apple tree varieties that is Self Fertile. You're pretty much guaranteed to get good fruit sets, even if there aren't any bees or neighboring compatible trees to cross pollinate your tree. If your growing season is too short for Braeburn, maybe get Gala instead. Gala is partially self fertile – you won't get as many fruits that set without cross pollination as you would on Braeburn, but at least the fruits you do get will ripen up earlier in the season.

    Another very good self fertile fruit tree is 20th Century Asian Pear. Very very prolific (better than Braeburn) and super delicious. Easy to graft too, but unfortunately since asian pears are so self fertile, their seeds never germinate for me. Thus, I have no appropriate rootstock to propagate this tree onto.

    I love this series in fruit trees. If you can, I would love to see a follow up each year as they grow and are pruned and start to fruit. Thanks so much. (Beth)

    Please show us how you've planted later. Thank you!! I first learned about espalier from Martha Stewart years ago and it's what I plan to achieve on my property. Here's her tips http://www.marthastewart.com/911841/how-grow-espalier

    Fab info. Super Cute outro.

    great video! In my garden I used step-over espalier apple and pear trees along the edge of my vegetable beds, instead of using a fence. This way I have a living fence that produces fruit as a bonus!

    Interesting you mentioned chickens and fruit trees. I was thinking of putting a peach tree between the hen house and brooder house. Can you show how to protect the trees from the chickens?

    Great tips! Not 100% convinced with growing trees right next to each other, I know when you trim a tree, any brunches crossing(touching) each other you trim them, due to rot and moisture issues that could happen down the road. Really great video thought! Going to try my hand at grafting and cloning some fruit trees this year, wish me luck! 🙂
