Are Family pear trees any good
A garage is being built adjacent to the end of our garden and I thought that it might make the ideal place for a pear tree, providing warmth and shelter. As most pear trees are not self fertile I am considering either a dual, triple or quintuple tree. The Five tree version seems to be only from Unwins but is tempting with its five varieties.
Does anyone have experience of these trees and good and bad nurseries to buy from? I'd like to order now ready to plant in November/December.
Also is it worth paying m,ore for a bigger tree or will a smaller one settle in more easily?
